When Novartis invites you to a MS Blogger conference in Chicago you go! When they let you bring a guest you invite your mom! What could be more fun?! We had such a blast at the conference and also squeezed in plenty of time for sightseeing around this beautiful city. We had the most GORGEOUS weather! I had been to Chicago once before but my mom hadn't been. So we did all the popular tourist attractions and got in plenty of walking!
We walked around forever trying to find a restaurant on our "free night" and when we finally found a good one it did not disappoint! The food and drinks were delicious!
After dinner we went on a night boat cruise along the river and into the lake. They do fireworks in the summer and they were some of the best I've ever seen them. We were right under them!
