Back from CHA Chicago

Here are some of my fave pics through out the trip to Chicago for CHA Summer! Some of the pics are just really bad due to my poor judgement of bringing my point and shoot vs. my new and awesome camera (but heavy and bulky). So here goes!
Warning: there will be tons of pictures from here on out so get ready.

The famous GIANT SILVER BEAN. I don't know, I am sure that is not the official name for it, but that is what I call it. And I luv it. We had so much fun taking pics there. I just wish some of my pics came out better....but they didn't so forgive me. I am sharing cuz I still luv them. Myself, Michelle, Kimmi and Tonya trying to catch a picture with us together. Kinda hard but we tried.Taking a picture of myself. I know this is so dark but I like it.

The girls made me pose so this is what they got. Can you tell I luv the giant bean! lol

This place was so cool. It was a step down from the bean and they had these two colored towers and water was coming down from the top like a fountain. And they had these huge face's on them which was so cool. We spent some time there taking pics and playing in the water. Will have to get some better pics from the girls. My camera really suck. I wish the pics below came out better but this is what I got!
All the girls trying to get in the picture. We had to use my automatic timer to get this and it is my only lucky shot of all of us together. So I'll take it!Got a lucky shot of the girls (Michelle, Kimmi and Tonya) in the water with their reflection. They kept splashing me with the water and I was telling or yelling at them to "STOP SPLASHING!" I guess they thought I was telling them to keep splashing. hahaha
Trip to the city with all the girls.
How cute is Kimmi showing her dimples.
Love the picture of us together below. I just wish it wasn't blurry!
Hotel Lobby Photo shoot:
Taking a picture of Tonya, Emily and Moe taking a picture of me, taking a picture of them. Huh?Trying to get a picture of Tim Holtz with me in it. Since the last time I was unable to get a picture with him I was trying to improvise. It didn't work, so I just took a picture of him in showing his technique once again. Bummer!
Yay! So I see Tim at the Lobby and got the nerve to ask him to take a picture with us. And his friend was nice enough to take the picture for us. Tim was so nice and sweet about the whole thing. FINALLY!!!! A picture with Tim Holtz.
A picture of Wendy and Kitty on their book signing. Thanks for the book girls!

One last picture of the girls walking through the city!

And lastly this was our dinner on our first night together. The famous Chicago deep dish pizza at Gino's. That thing was so thick I could only eat one slice.
