Chicago, Part I

The summer of travel continues with a trip to Chicago to see Bree and Russ!

Flying with Jackson is…an adventure.

 

placeholder://Bree and Russ were excellent tour guides, with Russ showing Josh the city by bike, and Bree showing us by train and by foot.

And we started with pizza. It was unlike any pizza I’ve ever had!

On Tuesday morning, my friend Emily (we worked together years ago, and she has since moved back to the Midwest) drive down with her four-month-old baby, Peyton Joy. What a blessing it was to see Emily and meet PJ!

We went for a walk around the beautiful neighborhood our Vrbo was in, Lakeview. Apparently we were very close to Wrigley Field, and even saw people walking to the game, but managed not to see the field.

We rode the brown line to downtown, and boy was Jackson excited to finally be on a train after seeing them since the airport!

We took an architecture tour by boat, which was great. The weather was so amazing that I told Bree I would never be able to imagine Chicago any other way.

We took the brown line back to our neighborhood and then walked the rest of the way. It was beautiful.

We ended the evening with a delicious dinner at Bree and Russ’ apartment, and afterward, we left Mimi with the kids and ventured downtown to Buddy Guy’s Legends to hear some blues. I was hesitant to leave the kids, but I ended up being very glad I did. The band was great, especially the harmonica player.

Stay tuned for the rest!
