I spent the next day at the Chicago Institute of Art. I saw much of the museum but I think it would take several days to see it all. My favorite room was Asian sculpture...a huge room filled with Buddhas of every size and material and these little dancing figures. It was so inspirational. In addition to the Buddhas were Monet's, Van Gogh's, O'Keeffe's, Seurat's Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte and Grant Wood's American Gothic and so much more.
After a day of culture I hit the Miracle Mile. My goal was to go to American Girl Place. I really have no children to buy for but I've always been fascinated with those dolls and when I got there I wished I was eight again! It was a great trip and sprinkled in there was Chicago style pizza and excellent croissants. It was a great city to explore and I have only just begun. I can't wait to go back.
