On Friday afternoon Haley and I decided that we’d had enough of being cooped up in the hotel and hit the pavement. We may have missed a session or two of interest and I know I missed a few keynote speakers who read favorite posts that I kinda wished I’d heard (I didn’t know that’s what the ‘keynote’ was about…)
Anywho, here are some pictures from our jaunt to Millennium Park, which is absolutely gorgeous and was a wonderful respite from the craziness of my first blogging conference…
After soaking our tired, tourist feet for a bit (everybody else was doing it too and it was even monitored by park employees…), we made our way out of the park.
We passed by this huge water feature where kids and adults alike were running and playing in the water on the ground. I wanted to join them but I wasn’t dressed appropriately.
We were picked up in a stretch/truck limo thingy (yes, that’s the technical term) and taken to The House of Blues for food, video games and drinks (me and my club soda with lime!)
After leaving the H of B we went back to the hotel to the MamaPop Party and I will leave you with a picture of the awesome unicorn cake. Because none of the dancing pics I took are “fit to print…” Let’s just say it was a blast, even for a pregger like me. I can work the belly, lemme tell ya! Just picture a lot of happy people dancing and enjoying themselves, just as it should be…
P.S. Go to Haley’s blog (my roomie) to see more pics HERE! (including her feet too!)
