Chicago Day 1b

After our power nap, we were ready to see more sights! Next stop: pizza! And not just any pizza, but deep dish Chicago style pizza!

I knew this pizza was going to be divine when we ordered it as soon as we put our name in for a table.

We tried the Tropic Delight pizza with Canadian bacon and pineapple.  Delish!!

We also tried their Special pizza with sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions.
Also fabulous!

You can see the yummy filling a little better in this pic.

And of course nothing could be better with our pizza than a large Diet Coke!
Needless to say we had plenty of leftovers, but I enjoyed each bite of my Chicago pizza experience. Thanks to everyone for their wonderful recommendations -- Giordanos was a hit! :)
With our tummies full, we were ready to see the sights at Navy Pier!
One might expect to find any number of things at Navy Pier: a ferris wheel, carousel, fireworks, fabulous stained glass collection...yes, stained glass! We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful collection of different stained glass styles.

We began by looking at some beautiful Biblical scenes.

There was such an incredible variety of types of stained glass.

I think these landscapes are so beautiful!
After seeing all that beautiful stained glass, it was time for the ferris wheel!!
What a view!
After our ferris wheel ride, it was time for fireworks!!
After the wonderful fireworks show, it was time for the carousel!

I "borrowed" this fun pic from sweet Rosalie's fb!!

What a fun evening! After the carousel ride, we were pretty tired, so we headed back to get some good beauty sleep before our next day of fun!!

Hope y'all are having a good weekend!
