Family Fun Downtown

Yesterday we took the train Downtown with the kids and visited Millennium Park for the first time. It was our first time on the train as well, and I was a little nervous, but overall it went well not sure if I could manage it alone yet.  Even though we are just 25 minutes from downtown we really don't go there much.  Now that the train was a success I think we will be going more often. We had lots of fun yesterday and I always love being able to have a day out with the whole family.  Here are a few pictures from our day there.

If you are ever in Chicago this is another fun trip and free:)  You can bring a lunch and just walk around to see everything and then let the kids run and play while you relax.  


  1. Definitely looks like everyone had a great time! If you want to make it a little easier to keep tabs on the kids, put them in the same colored t-shirt...that way you can look for 1 color instead of a few.
