After checking out of the hotel, we took a stroll down the Magnificent Mile en route to Navy Pier.
While we weren't really out to shop, we of course had to make a pit stop at the 3-story Crate and Barrel to add to our never-ending want list. I actually found these awesome pots and totally plan to make DIY copycats.
It's definitely a tourist spot but worth going at last once to check it out, especially if you visit Chicago with your family. We made sure to scope out the entire place.
The ladies taking the picture encouraged it, I swear.
Taking the rest of our last day pretty easy, we decided to enjoy some time outdoors in the beautiful weather. We took a walk around the lake.
We relaxed in the park.
And I had a photo shoot with my new pair of Crocs (the only pair I own).
Have I yet mentioned that the weather for our trip was PERFECT? Apparently spring break is normally pretty cold. Even my first visit to the city at the end of May was cold. But for us this trip, perfect.
Anyway, to end our glorious vacation we convinced ourselves to make one final stop - The Art Institute of Chicago.
|Van Gogh: Bedroom in Arles|
|Georges Seurat: A Sunday on La Grande Jatte|
The best part about the entire museum was actually this photo that we came across as we were leaving.
|Diane Arbus: Identical Twins|
If you missed the rest of the trip, check out Day 1 here, Day 2 here, and Day 3 here. I'll probably do some follow-up posts to review the restaurants more in depth, just not sure when. So stay tuned!
