This weekend was a weekend of Firsts for our little family. We took the kids on their first trip to Chicago (to visit my brother and family), we went to our first Cards/Cubs game at Wrigley, we rode the train to and from Wrigley, we had Gino's deep dish pizza, we went downtown and took a water taxi to Navy Pier, rode the Ferris wheel (a first for me and the kids), went to Portillo's for Hotdogs, went to a really awesome park, ate at Five Guy's and Fries and then came home. It was a fun filled couple days and we are already plotting our next trip. On that agenda is Shedd's Aquarium (we tried to go on Saturday, but there was a 2 hour wait in line just to get in so we opted for the Navy Pier) and the Jelly Belly Factory tour. We took the kids to the pool at my brother's complex before the ride home to wear them out. The kids really had a lot of fun and were very good in the car both ways. Tyson had a great weekend playing with boys his size. He is so used to being outnumbered by all our girls that he was really enjoying himself. We can't wait to do it again.
