Day 4

To kick off our last full day, we hopped on the train and headed downtown Chicago once more.

After making a Starbucks run, Dani and I navigated the streets and met up with my cousin, Alicia, for lunch at Caffe Baci. She has lived and worked in Chicago for quite some time now, so it was a lot of fun talking with her and getting insight on the city.

Hugs and goodbyes were given before Alicia headed back to work, then Dani and I went in search of a bakery to fulfill our dessert cravings! 

We stumbled upon Toni's Patisserie and Cafe; I delighted in a chocolate dome and an iced latte, 
while Dani enjoyed a chocolate ├ęclair. It was heavenly! 

Leaving the cafe, our stomachs quite happier, we walked only a couple blocks until we reached Millennium Park. Here we spent time taking pictures at the bean (shocker, right?) and cooling off by The Crown Fountain.


 Before heading back to the train, we found a cool comic book store which reminded me a lot of the one in 

We took the train back to Dani's cousins house in Winnetka, freshened up a bit, then hopped in the car and headed to her other cousins house in Hinsdale.

A wonderful meal was prepared for us, along with delicious s'mores to end our last night in Illinois.
