A Weekend Stay in the Windy City

One of our last weekends in Chicago we decided to take one last trip to the city to see the sights, and spend the night!  It was so much fun, we were so glad we did it.

On the Friday we decided to go, we met Chris for some lunch at one of his favorite little hole in the wall places called Chicken Planet.  We grabbed it to go, and went on the roof of his office building to eat.  The food was delicious and we had some great views of the city to enjoy!

After lunch, we headed over to the Sears (aka Wills) Tower to see the Sky deck and the sights.  Good thing we brought the iPad that had Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on it because someone got a little fussy waiting in line!

The sights were totally worth the wait!  I couldn't believe how beautiful it was.  It had me wishing we could have lived in the city so we could have views like that all the time.  Parker even braved the glass box!  He had way more guts to do it then his own parents!  Haha.

After looking at the sights, we headed back to our hotel to put Parker down for a nap, and to rest for a bit.  A little while later we headed out to find some dinner, and then walked over to see the Buckingham Fountain.  Parker wanted to play in the water so bad that he tried several times to fit through the fence!

Once it got a little too chilly to be out, we headed back and gave Parker a bath in the big bathtub and called it a night!

The next morning we got up early, got some breakfast, and lounged around our room, and then got ready for all the adventures we had planned.  First up was The Field Museum!

We got to see all kinds of exhibits, but our favorite was "Sue" the dinosaur! 

Last but not least, we couldn't leave Chicago without paying a visit to the historic Wrigley Field!

The day was hot, and the Cubs were playing really well, but we only lasted about 2 was still fun to go and see what this place was all about!

Thank you Chicago for all the fun you showed our family.  We will miss your beautiful city, the friends we made, and of course the delicious Chicago Dog!!  See you again one day.
