We will be in Chicago next week at this time and we are all pretty excited. This will be our second trip to the Shriner's Hospital of Chicago. Last year we saw an Orthopedic Surgeon who we will see again this year along with a Neurologist.
Chicago is only a five hour drive for us, but we like to make a trip out of it since there are so many cool things to see and do in Chicago. The boys had a ball last year when we went in October.
This year we scheduled the trip around Thanksgiving break from school, so there are a bunch of cool festive things that we might get to do this time around. Like the Christmas Tree lighting in Millennium Park, Ice Skating Rinks and The Thanksgiving Day Parade Downtown. On top of the Shedd Aquarium, The Adler Planetarium, Field Museum and Children's Museum which are all on our list as well.
The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival is on Saturday before we arrive so I am looking forward to walking through and seeing all of the Christmas Lights as well!
Evan has been talking about our trip for a couple of weeks now. He has been counting down on the calendar since we turned it November 1st. I heard him talking to Eric this morning about packing!
I am glad that the boys get excited for trips and love to travel just as much as Eric and I. It makes it that much more fun. I can't wait to share our experience and photos with you when we return home. Here are a few good ones from our trip last year.
