my kind of town

we headed to chicago for a wedding, made a wonderful weekend out of it.

view from our hotel, love the corn cobs!

we got right on the double decker bus for a tour, 3rd time, love the tour.  i could spend all day on the top level wondering around the beautiful town on perfect day.

next day we headed to the art museum, rain was predicted so thought this would be a fun outing before the wedding later that day.

checked on the progress of my vintage store on the way to the museum,  i wish.

rain it did.


so much to see, here are just a few paintings.

love john singer sargent

oh, yes the wedding.

it was beautiful! 

sorry this photo is fuzzy, had to lighten the pic due to lighting behind the alter made out of driftwood. 

the happy couple.

shuttle to the wedding?

back at the hotel, night view, love it!

we'll be back cause guess what is coming to chicago!

wauna - fest!

the only fair animal, the kiss the pig - pig. 
sorry bad photo,  he does have a snout :

the parade is always fun, my favorite event of the jam packed weekend.

thumbs up for non scary clowns.

I think Kyle and Julie enjoyed the goofy clowns.

cuties megan and marissa ready for some parade fun.

here they come, always a crowd favorite.

 we don't have giants in town, this is a mini semi, there is a guy actually stuffed in the cab driving it. 

Rick entered his boat in the parade.........

hey, girls lets pick-a-duck!

we're all winners, let me introduce you to the waunafest royalty, my lovely sis-in-laws - princess donell, princess sue, and lovely nieces - princess marissa and princess megan.
