On July 1st, we went to the Taste of Chicago. My dad had flown in for the weekend and we were all ready to eat some yummy food and enjoy the day. The weathermen has forecasted the high to be in the upper 90s with the heat index in the 100s. In fact, even in the morning they were still predicting the same weather. Well, they were wrong! If I have learned one thing about the Chicago weathermen, they are more likely than not wrong when predicting the weather. It was actually cloudy with rain threatening all day and the high was only in the mid 80s. Perfect weather for the Taste. We tried a lot of different food and Giada de Laurentiis did a cooking demonstration. She is so tiny and cute!
We also went to Millennium Park to see the Bean and the Face fountain.
And then here are some random downtown Chicago shots. I've discovered a new app on my iPhone so a lot of them were taken with it!
