We recently took a little trip to Illinios to see my brother and his family. We only see them about once a year so it was nice catching up, showing Carson around the town I grew up in, exploring Chicago and letting him spend time with his older cousins.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was a fun trip that consisted of shopping, going on water taxis, taking Carson on his first subway ride, making funny faces at The Bean, riding the ferris wheel, checking out a musuem, eating deep dish pizza and plenty of laughter.
You could feel the excitement and the entire city ready to celebrate the Cubs making it the World Series. The marathon was that weekend as well, so we enjoyed watching all the runners limp and walk funny the next day!
