trip to chicago: part 1

Last week, Bart took a few days off of work so we could take a quick family vacation to Chicago. On the way down, we shopped at IKEA and a huge mall. Of course the first thing the boys wanted to do was swim in the hotel pool. I think they would have been fine if the only thing we did on vacation was sleep in a hotel and swim in the pool.
The next morning, we got on the train to go into the city. The boys loved the train! They colored and played Old Maid, and before we knew it, we were there.
Our first stop was the Lincoln Park Zoo. It was so much fun, and it was free! One of the boys' favorite parts of the zoo was the farm.
They got to pet goats (even if it took Ky several minutes to get up the courage to touch it).
They also got to pet a chicken named Spitfire
After the zoo, we walked around downtown, stopping in a few fun stores.
Our next stop that day was Navy Pier. We rode on the huge Ferris wheel. It doesn't stop moving, and it takes seven minutes to go around once. The views from that high were awesome!

We ended our first day in the city with the boys doing a little boogieing.

We loved going to Chicago, you guys did better than us though-we never made it to the zoo or ferris wheel. Looks like you had a fun trip!
