Every two years the watch forum that I frequent hosts a meeting. This year it was held in Chicago. Normally I wouldn't make the trip, but I'm kind of close to Chicago (about 4 hours), so I decided to go. I made the trip by myself.
Here are some pictures I took.
Here's the Sear's Tower--the tallest building in Chicago.
Okay, I went to the American Girl store without my kids. (We have a family trip planned for this weekend.) I wanted to get Macy something, but I was presented with the problem of how to carry it around all day. The solution was this fancy little backpack. Yeah, I had to wear this pink backpack all around Chicago, but I promise you that I was not the silliest looking person in town.
Of course, for me the trip was all about the watches (and internet friends).
