As I told you earlier, for my birthday we were able to spend a four day weekend in Chicago. Before this trip we had only been to Chicago once - in the dead of winter. It was a miserable 9 degrees with piercingly cold winds. Needless to say we did not explore the city much. August was 10x better. We stayed downtown close to the lake and parks. David went to conference during the day and I would sleep in, go for a run around the city and along the lake, then meet him for lunch. We spent our afternoons and nights being tourists.
