We scored a good deal on Groupon for some Capri Drive-In movie tickets. We went to see Monsters University and Despicable Me 2. We didn't quite make it through the 2nd movie before we headed home, but we really enjoyed the outdoor theme.

We were super excited to win the Chicago Adventure from the PTOs Silent Auction. It included a $50 voucher for Amtrak. We still paid a pretty hefty fair, but figured we'd probably spend more on gas and we looked forward to our first train ride. (Note: It took forever to check in and we worried we would miss the train even though we went an hour early.)
We loved the Cellular Field Stadium and were proud to wear our Tiger Garb and cheer the boys on to victory. (We even had a chance to see Wrigley Field when the subway attendant sent us in the wrong direction. We wondered why the first store we stopped in had White Sox Suck T's:) No problem, we had plenty of time and enjoyed the ride.
What a great view! Unfortunately, our $5 seats wouldn't allow us down by the field for some autographs. Jim was super bummed about that.
A nice employee gave us some free entrance passes to the show too.
"We promise, we won't get wet!" We found a fountain by Navy Pier just as the sun was going down and it was getting cold. And just before our dinner at Bubba Gumps with Uncle Rich. We managed:)
I'm surprised I didn't get a pic of our hotel. We got a deal at the Allerton via Travelzoo. When we showed up, the room wasn't ready and they offered us an upgrade to a King Suite. Yes! The employees were all so friendly and helpful. I loved meeting up with Tina for some Chicago Pizza. Sadly, I didn't get a picture but I appreciate that she took the time out to meet us. Good times.
