For a little summer vacation, we packed up the car and headed to Chicago for a long weekend. Heather's mom has a good friend who lives in Chicago and was gone for a week on vacation, so we coordinated to stay at their place while they were gone. So after VBS ended on Friday, we loaded up the car and hit the road!
Lincoln Park Zoo. This Zoo is great, it's big with lots to see and the best part, it's 100% free!
After the zoo, we headed back to our place for supper. Then walked down the street for some ice cream!
Vacation Rental By Owner for future vacations. Full kitchen, bathroom, separate bedrooms...it was great!
Shoreline Architectural River Boat tour. It was awesome!
Harry Caray's for supper. They had great Chicago memorabilia and pretty good food.
Maggie Daley park, this is a giant park for kids of all ages! Filled with slides, swings, tree houses, bridges, it has a little bit of everything!
The trip home was good too, we made a pit stop at Williamsburg to do some "to school" shopping at the outlet malls and stretch out our legs!
Garrett loves playing "peek"...he throws his blankie over his head and then...
