* Philip and I went to Chicago for a weekend back in medical school (when I was pregnant with Keenan). It was winter and we had very little time, so we didn't get to see much then. We saw a lot more this time, but with three kids along, it made for a very different trip, getting around the city by foot, bus and train! =)
First stop: The Willis (formerly Sears) tower.
The kids and I on "The Ledge" one of the new glass boxes that sticks out from the 103rd floor of the skydeck!
We saw a lot of this place =)
The kids loved this!
We rode the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier
We stayed at the Historic Palmer House hotel
Had breakfast here
Beautiful Chicago River
I learned something new, as we saw several groups of young people, celebrating Quinceanera, a Latin American coming of age celebration for girls
A random intersection
I love the variety in architecture in the city!
