We had some family come into town to visit, so we took them on a great architectural tour. Chicago really is an amazing city. Our tour guide had so much knowledge of it's history and the architecture. He was clearly passionate about the architectural history and brought such an appreciation of the artistry behind each building and the era they were built in. Love the reflection in this building below, purposefully designed to reflect the buildings surrounding it. The tall tower with the white balconies behind it is a residential building and was designed by a woman architect. It was stunning.
 My Uncle is quite an accomplished architect in Arizona and comes from a family of architects so I really enjoy and respect the artistry and passion that can goes into a building. Also my cousin is an amazing architect. He truly is an artist.

 Classic Chicago in the photo above. 
The El and Wrigley Field Ivy transplanted onto this building on the river.
 We went to Millennium Park after the tour to listen to the Symphony. You can come and listen for free. People bring picnics, blankets, chairs and sit with their family and friends. Such a fun environment to listen to music outside surrounded by the city and the beautiful park. 
 Had to take a look at the "Bean" while we were there.
 This cute couple below was waving at their reflection :)

Millennium Park really is a piece of art. 
As the sun was setting we walked over to the fountains.

This girl below was clearly enjoying the fountain.
Just a few of many great things to experience in Chicago.
