Those who are my facebook friends have already seen almost 300 photos from our Chicago trip. I'll spare you that many and just post a few from each place.
We were on I 65 through Alabama making pretty good time when we found there was a bridge out. There was no marked detour, so Jessica got the atlas out and found some roads that would take us around it. That's when we saw this park a couple of blocks from the highway. We drove down to see what it had and found it had picnic tables, a play park and the fountains. We stopped for a whole hour because we'd been driving quite a while with only one quick break.
We made it up into Indiana the first day and only had to drive about four hours to Chicago the next day. So we were able to get our city passes and go to Shedd's Aquarium and Willis Tower (formally Sears tower) Sky Deck.

A 3D movie was included with our city pass.
We took nine photos here so we could get a good family photo. This one with me in it is good. What we didn't realize is that in the next eight photos Kaleb made ugly faces. I was so unhappy!!!! There is not one usable picture with all the kids taken here.
He made puffy cheeks and bugged his eyes out in all of them. I don't know if you can see it here. It may not seem like a big deal, but I'd told them I'd get one enlarged. So he made sure I couldn't do that.
This one on The Ledge in the Sky Deck came out well. I guess since I didn't say I wanted to get a nice one to enlarge. I downloaded pictures each night so until then I didn't know whether the pictures had come out well or not. That's why Kaleb was able to make the faces in all the photos. With my camera you have to look through the view finder so you can't see everything.
Anyone else ever go to the Sky Deck?
To be continued.
