A Weekend in Chicago

I spent the weekend with Rachael and Pete.  I had a fabulous time!  I took the train from Grand Rapids for the first time and not only was it slick, it was cheap.  I had to take a pic of Sammy.  She had just had her summer hair cut.  She is a big fluffy girl and she gets shorn for the hot weather.  They left her head all pouffe and now she looks like a bobble head.

I went to see Rachael in a concert on Sunday.  She was a soloist in a concert in Northfield.  It was all French composers.  She sang Pie Jesu from Faure's Requiem.  It is one of my favorites and she sang it beautifully if I say so myself.

Yesterday we went to the new modern wing of the Art Institute.  It is very beautiful, a study in windows and light. 
I t is very open with a lot of space

At times it seems sparse and the skyline was a more attractive view, especially in the room where the paintings were all white.
Though I did enjoy the Chagall's and Miro's.

We ate lunch at the Terzo Piano restaurant at the top of the museum.  The food was yummy and the view is fantastic.
