One of the first things we did was take Rhys to their awesome FREE zoo! He wanted to ride this train, but the screaming kid in the next car kind of ruined his ride. Good thing he wasn't in the same car as Rhys.
It was a really big, nice zoo, for being free.
I didn't know how much I would love Chicago! The gorgeous architecture was just the kind of thing I love. This row of colorful little shops was super cool. Plus, it was Fall, my favorite time of year and the leaves were BEAUTIFUL!
Look at those brilliant red leaves!
I think Rhys loved the leaves at least as much as I did! He pretty much rolled in them.
My first train ride.............it was interesting. Peoples is peoples.
I can't even describe this, but it was so cool. It was a huge digital picture and his eyes would blink and his mouth would move a little. It was totally awesome.
Downtown Chicago was really pretty. I'm really a country girl at heart, so I didn't expect to fall so in love with this city, but I did.
The famous silver bean.
This visit was so fun. I think John and I did an awesome job of keeping the secret that I was coming for a visit from Holli. We ate some yummy pizza, hot dogs, and the best popcorn I've ever had! I can't wait to go back. I'm sure it will look completely different in the spring. Thanks for showing me your city guys. Can't wait to see you in a few days!
