Vacation Slide Show! Chicago 2012

What would a vacation be without snapshots with which to annoy friends and family?

Well, we don't want to leave you hanging, so here's some snapshots from Jamie and Ryan Go A'Touristing in Chicago: 2012.

For our Google Album (public for now, but not forever) click here.

The lobby of the beautiful Palmer House Hotel

Jamie and I headed to Grant Park

at Buckingham Fountain.  A tourist on a Segway took this one.  Very nice man.

Did I say I loved the Field Museum?  I did.  And I missed a good 1/4 - 1/3rd of it.

Two classic girls.  Jamie and Sue the T-Rex.  Sue is a 90% complete T-Rex fossil.  Amazing.

the bones of the triceratops.  I always liked the look of this one.

Giant Ground Sloth pole dances behind Jamie.

Inside The Bean in Chicago's Millennium Park.

Chicago reflected in The Bean.

The Gemini 12 Capsule at Adler Planetarium.  A monumental piece of history under glass.

The Bean by Day.

Art Institute Chicago.  Wood's "American Gothic".

"Nighthawks" by Hopper.

Monet.  Had to snap the pic of Parliament.

"At the Moulin Rouge".  Toulouse-Lautrec.

Van Gogh.

Seurat's "A Sunday on La Grande Jette"

The phenomenal Chicago Public Library.

The night before the game we went to Wrigleyville to see  an improv troupe and got a quick pic of a deserted Wrigley Field.

Jazz musicians at the game.  Two seconds later, the area was swarmed.

Houston Astros at Chicago Cubs at Wrigley.
