So we went to Chicago! It was great. We filled our week up. We flew in Saturday Night and flew out Thursday afternoon.
Monday (7-16-07)we went on an awesome tour around and in between the city and finished the night up with a ball game. We took the L train and it was packed. Seriously the whole city goes to the games. There are Cub shirts everywhere you turn. The cub fans are awesome. It was an awesome old field. I have never seen anything like it.
Tuesday(7-17-07) we did the zoo.( Well it took us forever to get to the zoo because my brother could not parallel park to save us.) While there we peddled around a small lake too. That was pretty cool to be in the middle of the city and see the huge buildings behind tall trees while in a dinky boat. We played around in Lincoln Park. The kids loved chasing all the butterflies. We went and saw the play Wicked that night. It was amazing. I loved it. I would see it again. The theater was incredible. We took a taxi and that was pretty fun too.
Wednesday(7-18-07) we did Navy Pier. SO fun. The childrens Museum is there along with rides and shops. We ate at a Jazz resturant. Fun atmosphere. A lighting and thunder storm chased us out by the end of the night.
On our last(7-19-07) day Romney and I rode bikes around and went to a yummy Chocolate shop called Ethels. It was divine. Every time I go to Chicago I want to go there and I finally did. I think I sampled everything there. It was such a fun week to spend with my family. My dad and brother Derek and his family didnt make it out. We did miss them though. All the nieces and nephews and brothers and sister are great. It was awesome.
