Airport Goodbye! (from Kristin)

Chicago Pictures-Day 2 (from Kristin)

The Chicago trip continued on Sunday, July 30 with a morning visit to the Field Museum, afternoon shopping at Water Tower, and an early evening visit to Millennium Park to see the giant "Bean" and video sculptures. The evening concluded with a visit to the top of the Sears Tower.

Chicago Pictures-Day 1 (from Kristin)

On Saturday, July 29, Liz and the Kosovo choir members traveled to Chicago with Keith, Kristin, Jon and Jim and Karen Morgan for a weekend of sight-seeing before the long trip back to Kosovo. Big thanks to Keith and Jim for driving!

Everyone stayed at the Congress Plaza Hotel on Chicago's famed Michigan Avenue. The first night included a walk along State Street (and past the famous Marshall Fields department store), and Navy Pier for Build-A-Bear, dinner and a Lake Michigan boat ride before a limo ride back to the hotel (sorry...no photos of the limo ride but I am sure the kids took plenty!).
