What Do You Do in Chicago??

Chicago is a great place to visit. Everyone should experience The Taste of Chicago, Fireworks on Lake Michigan, a Cubs game, The Field Museum and The Shedd Aquarium. A speedboat ride in Lake Michigan and an architectural tour on the Chicago River is awesome. There is shopping on Michigan Avenue, The Sears Tower and many great restaurants. This is just a few things one should do while in Chicago.

We have enjoyed all of the above....But visiting with the Grand kids trumps them all!
We laughed, ate Popsicles, watched Kung Fu Panda 2, went fishing, planted flowers, laughed, ate more Popsicles, enjoyed our daughters delicious cooking, read stories, created works of art with paper, glitter and glue. And that was just the first day.

It was hot--real hot and humid. We come from the west where humidity is something you get from a humidifier! So we ate more Popsicles and played in the water. Life is good, we had a wonderful time.
Thanks Amber and Tadd. We were comfortable and couldn't ask for better hosts. Thanks Harrison and Henry for giving up your room for us. Thanks Maya for singing with Grandpa. We are looking forward to our next visit.
