We arrived home in the early hours of yesterday morning and I'm now in my usual post USA condition of severe jetlag and functioning at about half my normal capacity...which puts me about on a par with your average cabbage or similar vegetable! Our luggage decided it wasn't ready to return with us and spent an extra night in Chicago - who can blame it, it's an amazing city! It's only just returned home after taking a later flight. I'm supposed to be unpacking but just had to have a quick peak at my photos....

These are three views of a sculpture in Millenium Park, Chicago, I called it The Bean and as you can see I was fascinated by it. These were taken on our second day, it was wonderfully hot and sunny. We spent the afternoon at Wrigley Field watching the Cubbies play Arizona Diamondbacks. Not the most exciting game but good to see that historic ballpark.


It's hard to believe the holiday is over. I'm missing my Californian friends so much. On this trip I was also lucky enough to meet Mafia Wife and her lovely family who drove to Chicago to see us. We had a ball and she has two of the custest, funniest, most adorable little boys you could imagine.

I really MUST get some more washing on...back to the unpacking!

That was the coolest sculpture! We had so much fun hanging out with you all that day! Can't wait for a time when we can do that again! Glad you're home safely and get some rest and readjust to your time zone ;)

Glad you're home safely...though you must be shattered! I love this sculpture...it's huge! How on earth do they keep it so shiny? Make sure you have a good rest :o)
