Happy Birthday Mitchy

Hey Mitch are you as old as Johnny Depp yet??? We hope that you have a great b day today. We are sorry that we can't be there sharing it with you, so we thought we would do the next best thing and send you some pictures of where we are.

We know that Chicago has a special place in your heart. I think that Chicago looks it's best when seen from the river.

Now a little quiz for you: Name this building!

Next: What's the name of this fountain and what TV show did it appear in every week?

Now what street are we on?

What building is this???

This is not a picture for you, but a gift for your kids. High School Musical is here in Chicago and will be playing until September 2. I think you might have to talk Mom into a road trip when you are visitng Iowa. Good Luck!

I think I have most of the answers and have done so without the benefit of "Google"....
1. John Hancock Building
2. Buckingham Fountain/"Married With Children" (Did you forget I used to work for a FOX affiliate?)
3. I'm having trouble with this one. It's not Michigan Ave.--but I believe a cross street with it.
4. Sears Tower
Thanks for the birthday wishes!
