Chicago - Day 2

This was a day I've waited for for a long time - Wrigley Field! We went on a tour & had tickets to the game. Very exciting! 

We were early for our tour so we walked around Wrigleyville & stopped at Starbuck's for coffee. 

The Team Store had a lot of awards that Cub players have won over the years.

Greg Maddux Cy Young Award

One of Greg's gold gloves. There were also Louisville Slugger & Gold Gloves for Ryne Sandberg. 

This was really cool!

The Cubs World Series Trophy!

We woke up to awful weather Friday morning. Rain & 42 degree wind chill awful.

The tour was really interesting. There's so much history. 

It was very cool to be on the field. We had on several layers.

After the tour we went to Wrigleyville for lunch & a drink & then back to the stadium for the game. 

We weren't the only ones cold. 

I loved our seats!! Also, I took my ear muffs off for the picture. Yes, I had on ear muffs. Luckily, we're check the weather before you go somewhere people so we were prepared for the awful weather. 

It started raining harder & there was a dealy & we waited around for about 45 minutes & decided to move on. We didn't know when or if they'd resume play & we didn't want to waste any time. We saw 5 innings & it ended up being a 2 hour rain delay so we made the right decision.

Next up was Chicago style pizza.

It was good but I prefer New York style. 

We spent the rest of the evening walking down Michigan Ave. & doing some shopping. That was it for Friday!
