Chicago Trip

Got a nice picture of the arch as we were leaving downtown St Louis on Thursday June 10th via Amtrack. We had sort of a bad start because our train was delayed four hours due to flooded tracks in Texas. While we waited we went over to Union Station and feed the fish and turtles. I also got a neat picture of the Harry Potter station. I'll share that picture a bit later! But as we rolled out of St Louis....there was the arch in all of its beauty!

We went to Navy Pier. I decided to pose with the city in the background. Chicago is a busy busy place. Evan enjoyed riding the Merry Go Round. Katie and Kelsey rode a giant ferris wheel and got some cool pcitures up above the city. We stayed at the Wyndam Hotel, which was a great location because we could walk to almost everything except Shedd's Aquarium. We took a bus there.
I love this picture of Evan in the Children's Muesum. There were tons of things to do and he had a blast. Here is putting out a fire! There's also a water room where he wore a little green overcoat and played with boats!
Here's a group shot after we ate at the Rainforest Cafe. Evan freaked out when we first walked in because there was a huge snake hanging from the ceiling and he thought it was real. Well, it was moving. We enjoyed a very nice meal in a great atmosphere!
Here's another great spot...Gino's East....serving Chicago style pizza.....man it is filling!! Lots of crust and cheese! Also we all wrote on the wall and then posed for a picture together!!

Have a lot more pictures...so hopefully...I'll share a few more before moving on to the next adventure!! In Chicago, we basically got to do all the things we had planned to do....so a VERY successful trip.
