Chicago

So, time for a new post. For Jonathan's birthday we went to Chicago to see the Symphony play the Mahler 6 Symphony. Since Mahler is Jonathan's favorite composer and the Chicago Symphony one of his favorite orchestras, it was perfect. So Friday we afternoon we drove out, it took about 4 hours, parked at a parking garage that was way too expensive, and then walked around Chicago. What a fun City! We walked around downtown, then walked around Lake Michigan and walked over to the Navy Pier for
dinner. We then took a cab back to the Orchestra hall, and listened to the pre-concert lecture. The concert was amazing and our seats were right above and behind the trombones, so Jonathan got a good view. It was really exciting. Here are some pictures. There is one of Lake Michigan, with all the boats and then a picture of orchestra hall.
