Last week I was in Chicago for the art doll conventions. We stayed at the Hyatt, and right outside our hotel room window, they were filming the movie Transformers 3. Every now and then we'd hear explosions and so forth.

Chicago is a wonderful city. It was our first time there, so Bob and I did some sightseeing. We took a wonderful river boat architecture tour.

We went to Millenium Park and the Art Institute on Saturday. This is the Crown Fountain, where they project different faces onto the fountain. This was really cool!

We saw several brides on Saturday. :)
The Art Institute was AMAZING!! I can't say enough about it. We couldn't see everything in one afternoon, but we did see the European and Impressionist art. Lots of Renoirs. Here is one of my favorites....
