On our ACTUAL anniversary night, September 2nd, my hubby planned us a romantic evening out in Chicago. It was a bit stressful figuring out if we could go, with a sick kid and homework issues, but once we straightened all that out -- we had a great time.
The weather was ABSOLUTELY gorgeous, sunny and warm -- a beautiful day. We walked around Navy Pier and took a lot of pictures.
And believe it or not, Kenny agreed to ride the Ferris Wheel! This, if you don't know, IS A BIG DEAL. Kenny isn't too fond of rides like this, so I was really surprised he volunteered to let us ride it. (I just had to promise not to rock the cart we were in.)
The view from the top was amazing! We were really up there.
We could even see the boat we were having our dinner cruise on from up there. Nice, huh?
We could finally board the boat after 6:00, the sun was starting to go down but it was still quite beautiful out.
Kenny had informed them it was our anniversary ahead of time, so we had an awesome dessert plate with Happy Anniversary in chocolate written around the edge of the plate.
Afterwards, we went back up to the observing deck and enjoyed the view.
The evening closed with a spectacular fireworks show off of Navy Pier. How cool is that?
It was a wonderful evening! Thanks, honey!!! :-)
