Chicago + 4th of July = Perfect Weekend

Our weekend started on Saturday with a trip to Wrigley Field and a Cubs game. We went with Dale and Rita Colee and met Lynn, Susan, and Logan Grider at the game. We enjoyed drinks at Murphy's before the game, after all, it was 5 o'clock somewhere! It was a little early to start drinking but heh, it was the 4th of July!!

We decided we to go into the stadium where we were seated in the 3rd row behind the Cubs dugout, awesome seats!!

On Sunday we enjoyed brunch at the Palmer House and on a whim, the Colee's suggested going to see the play, Jersey Boys. We went to the 2:00 matinee and it was a great play, with great music, LOVED it!

After the play we ate at California Pizza Kitchen and then off to Amber's Bandit game in Elgin. Abby and Carl joined us for the fundraising game for the Susan G. Komen Cancer Foundation. I am wearing my DePaul breast cancer t-shirt.

We said our goodbyes to Amber, Abby and Carl and left for home. It was a late night but so worth it! Overall, it was a great weekend with great friends, good food, and a great time!!!
