My kind of town, Chicago is.

Day 2


The morning of day two began with iced lattes and a trip to downtown Chicago.
We ate breakfast at the The Bongo Room, where they had breakfast that was just to die for! 
I enjoyed a veggie and egg croissant sandwich, while Dani had a a heaping plate of pancakes.


Next, it was off to the Field Museum and Soldier Field.


Wandering aimlessly around the museum, we learned about our evolving planet, saw some dinosaurs and ambled through tombs filled with mummies. 



After stopping in the pro shop to stock up on some Bears gear, we drove to Navy Pier. 



To get escape the sun for a bit and get a better look of the Chicago skyline, we took a ride on the ferris wheel! The sights from the top were breathtaking. Panoramic views of the city and Lake Michigan were before us. 
I could have easily stayed up there all day!



Before leaving the pier, an ice cream treat was a must! We then headed back to the car 
and took a scenic route home on Lake Shore Drive.

Our evening was spent with good food, soccer in the front yard, and reading Harry Potter to the kids for their bedtime story.
