A Vacation with Grandsons to Chicago

We arrived on Tuesday and took a stretch Lincoln limousine from O'Hare to the downtown area to check into the Hampton Inn, on Illinois Street, one block from State Street and in the River North area of restaurants and hotels, just north of the Chicago River. It's a great location and we have a wonderful corner room with a bedroom door that closes and a nice sofa bed and separate television for the kids. The first night we walked a block and a half to Weber's Grill and after a 40 minute wait, we had the best burgers I'd eaten in a long, long time, and the kids were free with special cards that we got from Tracee, basketball player (UCLA) and Hill Street Blue's Mike Warren's second cousin. Mike Warren's son, Cash, is married to Jessica Alba. Mike was a great point guard on one of John Wooden's NCAA Championship Bruin teams. The conversation began with Tracee's comment to Lin that are boys were very cute and she could see we were from California.... where she had a cousin.... Mike Warren, who happens to be one of my very favorite people. I know of him as a basketball fan and really didn't see him on HSB.
