Once a summer, the Hamacher crew heads up to visit Ty in Chicago for the day. This year we made it up there for lunch and hung around millennium park for awhile checking out the water feature/splash pad and the bean thing. Then we walked over to the Magnolia Bakery for cupcakes since it was the day before my birthday. So yummy. So rich. So sweet. After we got our sugar high we hiked over to Navy Pier which surprisingly none of us had ever been to. Soon enough it was time to head home. Seemed like a super quick visit and we decided next time we would have to figure out a way to stay longer.
