|On our way to Spiaggia... dressed for snow right?|
After being frozen to the core the night before we were feeling a hotter climate coming our way... LA here we come!! We booked a one way ticket to LA and signed up to rent a car that we could return in Denver 5 days later... I didn't know you could do that... but it was easier then finding a car to buy on Craigslist LA--
The initial plan was to buy a cheap car and sell it at the final destination, but after an hour or two of searching with no luck we opted for the rental.**Lesson Learned... buying a cheap car on Craigslist at the last minute does not always work... (BIG BLUE VAN WAS AN EXCEPTION!)
Now it was time to explore Chicago... it was so cold! We walked out of our hotel, around the block and quickly found ourselves in Macy's. Matt bought some gloves and I bought some tights. Then to Caribu Coffee to put my tights on and grab some warmth for the soul.
Millennial Park was the next stop. Looked at the lake, took some awesome pictures, walked and talked, watched people and then ice skating!! This happened to be one of my favorite parts of the trip, but Matt didn't love it as much as I did. The last time I had that much fun was at my niece Shiloah's 5th Birthday Party!! (Roller Skating) Its so relaxing (at least for those of us with a lower center of gravity and not as far to fall if you scrape on the ice.
For those of you who are getting tired or reading this post... I will adjourn and pick up with lunch next
