Wandering:: Chicago

One of the things I love about living where we do is how close we are to Chicago. While we live in a small, artsy, beach town, it's a quick 40 minute ride to soak up all the city has to offer.
Some days, it's just the sort of mini get away we need.
Come along with us as we explore Chicago....

It all started with a train ride to Chicago for a day filled with fun..

We ended up exploring the Adler Planetarium..

...became famous...

...studied the night sky...

...and then the big, blue lake.

Wandered to the Shedd Aquarium..

& ran off some energy near the Field Museum.

Ate a quick lunch al fresco...

and discussed the moon cycles.

The children saw a twinkie for the 1st time, a wild experiment in processed food..

and lightening inside!

The Museum of Science & Industry is full of things to explore.
We ended the day at "the bean"...

and listening to this amazing band from Bali who played with Howlin' Wolfs Band.
Jazz Fest in Chicago.
This city has soul.


  1. FUN! I've only been to Chicago once - but I loved it...

  2. looks like a great day! you really got a lot crammed into that day!

  3. we did cram a lot in! Weve been to all these place before so we just strolled through and were on our way. It was a loooong fun day for sure :)
