When the conference starts I never see Alvin until time for him to go to bed at night so Gretchen always arrives and we check out the area. We drove an hour away to Oshkosh to go to the American Girl Outlet Store but it was not worth the drive. I always like traveling outside of the city because you really see what the state is like. In this case, not so exciting. Because of their harsh winter this year we saw nothing but frozen over ponds and dead grass fields. I would of liked to have seen some dairy cows and the big barns.
Having seen all of Milwaukee I cared to see we took an hour drive to check out Chicago and I am glad we did. We did not do anything but just drive down Michigan Avenue where all the shopping is. The streets were packed. Of course we checked out Wrigley Field the home of the Chicago Cubs and that was cool. We ended the day with a recommended pizza place for the deep dish Chicago style pizza. It was yummy. We will definitely return to Chicago for a longer visit in the future.
