Going out for Black Friday is a crazy adventure, especially when you've never experienced it before!
And doing it in downtown Chicago is even crazier! This just barely captures the crowds, chaos and craziness of this traditional American shopping event that takes place the day after Thanksgiving.
We mostly just people-watched, fought the crowds, and took pictures. It's not really a day for getting serious shopping done. WAY too many people.
But I sure liked the people I was with while we were out! :)
We loved being outside where it was festive, and the sun was shining.
And it's always fun to stop in for a free piece of chocolate at Ghiradelli's. Maybe these two even bought a couple pieces to keep up their energy along the way.
We managed to keep track of each other the whole time, laughing, talking and enjoying the experience of being together.
Aw Chicago...so fun to be there with my dear family!
