Navy Pier – Tuesday Part 1

Spread the love

Tuesday morning we got up, still full from dinner the night before, so we decided to walk some of it off! We headed for Navy Pier. Navy Pier is full of lots of fun. During the summer at night they have firework’s shows. The last one, Sept 4th, our wedding day so we weren’t able to witness one of those. See another reason to go back 🙂 Not that I really need a reason other than I want to 🙂


I feel like a gal out of a movie, like I should be singing and dancing (and no not “pole” dancing…)

I love Mac & cheese THIS much!

My honey and me!

Ok this is how windy it was… look at my poor hair!

I was aiming to get the skyline in the background… I don’t think I succeeded!

The beautiful skyline!

My baby with the skyline

and me with the skyline 🙂

Pretty flowers 🙂

I asked someone to take our picture with the skyline.
I had to hold my hair b/c the wind was wicked wild!

The Anchor off the U.S.S. Chicago




I was attempting to shoot it like he was touching the top. I misjudged just a bit 🙁

And of course, me with the sunglasses….


We ate lunch at Capi’s Italian Restaurant. PC RAVED about the tomato basil soup. It was pretty good and I’m not a fan of tomato soup.

My Cavatappi and Mushrooms in Gorgonzola Sauce

Then we went to their botanical gardens.

Next came the BIG Ferris Wheel. I’m not a fan of Ferris Wheels but I couldn’t pass up riding it either. It never stops, it moves slowly and you “run” to jump on it. It is 150 ft tall. It’s a replica of the 1893 World’s Fair Ferris Wheel.

See I’m doin good… 🙂

And it’s a breeze for this one!

Once you got to the top it felt like you weren’t moving b/c the wind was whipping the car around so bad….

Here are some views from the Ferris Wheel:




Once we got off the Ferris Wheel we went in and had this ring made and did a build a bear. The build a bear we named Honeymoon and she sits on our bed with the ring bearer pillow when we get the bed made 🙂

I have a lot of photos from this day as well so I’ll break it up into a 2 posts so you don’t go on photo Over Dose 🙂

Peace, Love, & Tuesdays (on a Thursday re-cap)

  1. I love that black shirt that you were wearing! Super cute!! I don't think I could do that big ferris wheel like you did….:-S ha ha You are brave! xo

  2. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun.

    I hate ferris wheels as well. C was actually planning to propose to me on one until he realized that there was no way he would be able to talk me into going on.
