We wanted to "get away" with the kids this past week for Spring Break, but knew a tropical, beach vacation was not in the budget. We thought since we are only 2 1/2 hours from Chicago that we would venture up on the train and explore this great city. I love, love Chicago and it's beautiful architecture, history, and culture. My love for the city is rubbing off on my girls too.
I actually took this picture from the window at the Field Museum.
The windows on the roof of the Field Museum made out of long lasting aluminum and was originally designed to look like a "square wagon wheel". Such detail!
A view of the John Hancock Building (the far left black building)
On a clear day the views from the John Hancock observation deck is breathtaking,
you can see clear up and down Lake Shore Drive.
Yes, this building does have a piece cut out of it.

located. The girls swam and I had a blast taking
pictures of the city and the amazing architecture.
