A trip to Chicago was just what our family needed. We enjoyed staying and spending time with my Aunt Sue and Uncle Lyle. The first day, we were pretty tired so we did two low-key activities in Wheaton, Illinois: Cosley Zoo - free with our FONZ zoo membership and Catigny park. On Sunday, we went to church and just hung out, roasting hot dogs and s'mores with my aunt and uncle. Needless to say, we had GREAT weather in Chicago!
On Monday, we headed into Chicago to visit the Museum and Science and Industry and we had a wonderful time. Highlights include the weather exhibit (40 foot tornado and experiencing 80 mph winds), the body exhibit (giant heart beats in time with your heartbeat), and watching baby chicks hatching. Our Carnegie Museum Pass got us in free, parking is $16.00 and lunch in the museum was plentiful and affordable.
