we spent the morning with a few presidents. can you name all four?
classically awkward family family vacation photos. self-imposed bunny ears is my favorite.
pretty sure MY face will be the next addition to mt. rushmore – it’s the perfect fit!
good bye south dakota, hello chicago!
namaste from the top of the world. or at least from the top of the willis tower (aka the sears tower).
made some new friends at millenium park.
the famous “bean” found inside millenium park captivated the kids (& me).
practicing his moon walk at the museum of science & industry – one small step at a time.
hot dog chicago style: mustard, relish, chopped onion, tomato, dill pickle spear, 2 peppers & celery salt. (rumor has it, it’s “illegal to put ketchup on your hot dog within the city limits of chicago).
carousels & ferris wheels & swings, oh my! navy pier in chicago is practically paradise according to my kids.
the chicago skyline from navy pier at dusk is absolutely breathtaking – twinkle twinkle little lights.
eating our way thru chicago – next stop was gino’s east for “legendary” deep dish pizza. #deepdishvirgin
on top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese, i lost my poor meatball, when somebody sneezed.
take me out to the ball game, take me out with the crowd.
let me root, root, root for the home team. if they don’t win it’s a shame.
a dinosaur named sue – the world’s largest, most complete, best preserved tyrannosaurus rex at the field museum.
& of course, we had to bring a little chicago home with us, in the form of our version of garrett’s popcorn legendary chicago mix – a blend of caramelcrisp & cheesecorn popcorn. it may sound strange, but it’s strangely delicious (we prefer to mix a medium bag of caramelcrisp with a small bag of cheesecorn for a higher caramel concentration).
