While including our dogs.
Since we were on break last week, we thought we would spend our time off becoming real tourists. We packed up our bags, took a cab 2 miles east, and all four of us stayed at a pup-friendly hotel in the heart of downtown Chicago.
Being immersed among all of the tourists and their excitement made us feel like tourists ourselves.
We began to see the city in a new way. Which meant we needed to head out to Chicago's #1 Tourist Attraction: Navy Pier.
But we usually tell people it's not worth going. If you're not going to do any of those things, it's just filled with trinket shops, over-priced chain restaurants, and huge crowds.
Until we came this last trip.
Walking over early in the morning with the cooler temperatures, and all of us snugly wrapped up in scarfs, we missed the huge crowds and we realized how relaxing and beautiful the view was.
With plenty of photo opps.
It actually reminded us a lot of this.
Mr. B brought his camera to share his dog-eye view of visiting Navy Pier. From walking out of the hotel (thank you doorman!) to heading to the pier, looking at the views and meeting people.
My favorite parts are his leaping sequences, meeting people who knew the pups from online (thanks for saying hi!), and seeing spider-Miss M coming down the stairs.
Plus seeing the photos we took from Mr. B's point-of-view:
It's so funny to see it from the pups' point-of-view.
What are your favorite parts of Mr. B's video?
We are looking forward to doing this again this summer.
