A visit to Chicago's Millennium Park

One of my sisters came for a visit over the weekend. She's got four kids between the ages of 11 and 16 and a husband who travels a lot for business, so it wasn't an easy trip to schedule.

We squeezed in a lot of sightseeing and good meals, but we also got to sleep in late one morning and capped off her trip by going to the spa for a hot stone massage.

Here's a few pictures from our walk around Millennium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago. It was a beautiful Fall day.

The Cloud Gate sculpture, popularly known as The Bean:PDRM2788
My lovely sister (I made her wear the Red Scarf so we could get some better pics of it for the blog):
Up close to the bean:

In the picture above, you can see the feet of people who have walked underneath the sculpture. My sister and I also walked inside and took a picture by aiming the camera straight up. We're the flash of light at the center:PDRM2796
