We took a trip to Chicago!
On the way we drove
through Indiana, saw the Indianapolis 500 Speedway and lots of windmills
The next day we
went to the Field Museum, saw the biggest T. Rex ever found, saw bones
from our ancestor "Lucy"
went to the planetarium and saw a moon rock.
We also got a great view of the Chicago skyline.
We ate real
Chicago style pizza before heading to the top of the Willis Tower.
(previously the Sears Tower)
The views were amazing, plus you could stand in a glass box
leaning out over the edge of the observation deck.
Mom and Katie took her dolls to the American Girl store to get freshened up
While Dad and
Cameron saw the Reds play the Cubs at Wrigley field
(with classic obstructed view seats.)
We had dinner at
the famous Ed Debevic's diner. The wait staff are comically known for
being insulting and dismissive.
(They also dance on tables.)
Katie got a birthday treat too!
By the end Katie
and Cameron were veterans of the "El" train.
Dad even got to visit the National Baseball
He got autographs from Randy Johnson, Bert Blyleven, and Cal Ripken, Jr.
We finished with a visit to the
where Katie got another birthday treat
(HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATIE!)
