I didn't have time to do much for Day 18, but I did spend time organizing my pictures from our family trip to Chicago. We went to Chicago during Memorial Day Weekend because The Mister had some business to do at the Building Department. We had talked about going this summer anyway, so when the opportunity came up we decided, two days in advance, this was the right time to go.
Here are a few of my favorite moments from the trip.
|Enjoying the hotel room view|
|Silliness at the hotel|
|"Conducting" an orchestra at Pritzker Pavilion|
|Exploring Cloud Gate|
|Checking out reflections|
|Early morning at Cloud Gate|
|My self-portrait and would-be camera thief|
|Practicing walking in Crown Fountain|
|Flying a kite in Grant Park|
|A bench made of rolling pins at the Children's Museum|
|Captivated by computers at the Children's Museum|
Of course, we have many other wonderful memories of our time in Chicago. Travelling with young children is challenging, and when those kids have some dangerous food allergies, it's important to have a plan for every situation. I feel like The Mister and I really stepped up in terms of our organization, our flexibility, and our patience. I tell myself it only gets easier from here.
