 We made it! No better place to start our Chicago adventure than "The Bean" at Millenium Park.
 Just the girls this boys allowed!

 Next stop, Navy Pier.

 Trying the famous Chicago hot dog dragged through the garden with 7 toppings. How and why do they make the relish so neon green?

 Taking time to stop and smell the flowers as we explore different parks along the Lakefront Trail 
  Learning about Chicago's history and architecture during a boat tour on the Chicago River
 Some highlights of Chicago Art Institute
 Checking out the Wooden Alley during our bike tour
 Guess who has a stature in Lincoln Park?
We loved learning more about Chicago's neighborhoods during Bobby's Bike tour.
 One of the last remaining "kit houses" that were sold after the Chicago Fire of 1871.

 The baby camel at the Lincoln Park Zoo is named Alexander Camelton.
 Our bikes had names too. I rode Beyoncé and Katherine rode Gilbert.
 The view of Chicago's iconic Skyline from the kissing bridge.
 After our bike ride, we just happened to walk back to our hotel via The Magnificent Mile.
 Remember, no boys on this trip. So of course we went shopping. 

 The main event of our trip was Hamilton. Best. Musical. Ever.

Since we walked and biked everywhere, we had quite the appetite for deep dish pizza and Garrett's popcorn. 

 We ended our trip with the view from the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower.
Amazing views. Amazing company.
Katherine, we may have to make this an annual tradition! Just don't tell Daddy and Jack.
