Roadtrip: Chicago

I know, I know… my one-year-old is definitely well-traveled! What can I say, except that she’s turning out to be like me in that regard, she loves to get out and go. She doesn’t necessarily like to be strapped in her carseat for so many hours at a time… but we powered through it, even resorting to about 15 verses of “The Wheels on the Bus” at the top of our lungs. She just couldn’t bring herself to whine while that was going on! Upcoming trips will probably include beaches on Lake Michigan, and St. Louis in August. Just wait until she’s old enough to be able to endure long plane rides…

I took about 50 photos of tall buildings, like I always do in big cities
