Vacation- Chicago Adventures

I have been a little absent lately because we have been on vacation. Blake and I are actually still on vacation while Andrew is in Atlanta working for the week. My mind was on vacation the entire week before we actually left! A week ago today we left our first destination which was Chicago.

We spent 3 days in Chicago which wasn’t long enough but was good for us on this trip. Blake was really worn out from all the walking so he slept hard every night! We had a few things that we really wanted to do and eat while in Chicago and we did most of them!

  • Navy Pier √
  • Deep Dish Pizza √
  • Italian Beef √
  • Cubs game at Wrigley Field √
  • The Field Museum to see Sue the dinosaur √
  • Architectural Boat Tour √
  • Fireworks on Lake Michigan √
  • Chicago Dog √
  • Dylan’s Candy Store √
  • City Beach √
  • Xoco- a Rick Bayless Restaurant √
  • The Lego Store √
  • Visited a Fire Station √

We did so much but in reality there was still so much we could have done. A trip back is going to have to happen someday! We did find a fun restaurant that had over a hundred beers on tap called Howells and Hood. Blake’s little sliders were the best he had anywhere.

We had such a great time on our trip with just the three of us. It’s not very often that we get to go somewhere new to all of us. We loved our little family vacation and I am looking forward to so many more!

When we left Chicago we rented a car to continue our vacation. We made a few stops in Wisconsin on our way to Minnesota. In Wisconsin we stopped at New Glarus brewery for a little beercation then we stayed the night in Madison. Andrew and I are going to go back to Madison for a visit without Blake so we can act like college kids! Ha!DSCF6299 - Version 2

We arrived in Minnesota on Wednesday (July 29th) and are still having the best time. I’ll update about our time in Minnesota when we leave in a few days.
