A Little Get-Away

The pipeliner and I did a quick little get-away over the past three days. We hopped on the train for a ride into the city.

All Aboard!!
It was a great day for a train ride! The weather was horrible and traffic would have been worse driving in!
The Chicago skyline.
We stayed at a different hotel than usual. But the view felt familiar. Tomato plants left over from the summer.
Roof top garden.
The snow was coming down fast and furious.
Waiting for a cab.
We didn't venture far the first night. Just dinner at our favorite seafood place.
The next day we went to the Shedd Aquarium. So many interesting things to do and see.
A few sea horses floating around.
The jellies.
This exhibit was the coolest!
More jellies!
And another one!
I think this guy was giving me a hard time about eating his cousins the night before at dinner.
I love living in the country. But we sure do enjoy taking a few days to spend in the city.
I am always in awe standing in the middle of these buildings!
So much to see and do!
We will be back to the city when the weather warms up.
Tomorrow we are off to spend a few days at the farm!
