Chicago and Wisconsin September 2013

Kraig’s cousin Gretchen got married in Milwaukee in September.  We had plans to fly into Chicago two days early, explore the city and catch up with a friend living in Chicago before we drove our rental car to Milwaukee. A bunch of flight delays resulted in less than 24 hours in Chicago with a brief drive through tour of the city.

Lou’s Pizza looked good, but the taste was just okay. It didn’t meet my deep dish expectations for Chicago.

We spent our time catching up with some old friends and then hit the road again the next day to visit our friend Vera in Madison, Wisconsin. Vera’s in veterinary school and we don’t get to see her much, so it was nice to see where she’s been living while she works hard to pursue her dream.

We finally made it to Milwaukee on late Friday night. Saturday was the wedding. Here’s me with my future brother-in-law Kameron.

The wedding venue in Milwaukee was at a nice restaurant and right near the water.
