Chicago

We took a quick mid-week trip to Chicago!

We left our home early Tuesday morning and spent the afternoon driving around Chicago. We drove through the city and saw Lake Michigan, Soldier Field and Navy Pier.  We then parked our car and walked around Millenium Park and saw the reflective "Bean" sculpture and the outdoor theater.









I absolutely loved walking down the streets in Chicago. The streets were really busy and traffic was crazy, I loved the business though and the thrill that came from being in such a fast paced place...I almost felt like I was in New York city for a moment. I wanted to stop and take pictures of all of the amazing buildings but with 3 kiddos and lots of rain I didn't. 



The Willis tower was a must see! We loved it and I seriously wanted to stay another 3 hours and wait for the sun to set and watch the city lights appear but we decided to head to our hotel and let the kids unwind before picking up my parents from the O'Hare airport.














Joe dropped the kids and I off at our hotel and left to pick up my parents from the airport. We got settled and met up with my sister Holly and her family (they spent the day at the museum of Science and Industry). We decided after a fast paced day to have dinner ordered in and got 2 large Chicago style pizzas from Giordano's! I really liked the pizza...it was a deep heavy crust which was super filling and almost tasted like lasagna.


We spent the next morning hanging out with Holly and her family and my brother Scott and mom and dad! It was so fun being all together again coming from Michigan, Iowa, and Utah!  The kids loved being in a hotel with their cousins and grandpa and grandma. We had a fun time swimming together, watching TV shows, eating treats and just relaxing.
