Laura and I went to get some Harry Potter in 3D at the Imax action and got some great shots off of Navy Pier:

I really enjoyed this painter/sculptor.   His work had such energy.  I wouldn't mind owning a few. 🙂

Then we went to Millennium Park and read with our feet in the water, and took great pictures of the Wildflower garden:
