Our trip to Cago
Someone mentioned to me (thanks, Mom) that in previous posts I have made it sound as if David and I did not enjoy Chicago at all. Well, that is certainly not the impression that I intended to give. It is a challenge to travel with David, but it is a challenge to take him into the neighborhood Hallmark store to buy a birthday card. And since we have returned, David has been talking about our trip. Every time we are in the car for more than 10 minutes, David will ask "Cago? Cago?"
So, to dispel the myth of a miserable vacation, I find it necessary to highlight some of David's and some of my favorite moments from the trip.
The first on the list would have to be the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel. Now, if you read the August 3rd post, you would certainly be able to determine if it goes on David's list or on my list. Let's just say that David does not share my fear of heights. In fact, the only reason I stepped into the gondola was because if I hadn't gone, I know David wouldn't have gone, or wanted Andrew or Michael to go either.
Next on the list is the Chicago Double Decker Bus Tour. We didn't use our car the whole time we were in Chicago and used the three day pass on the double decker bus to travel between most of the attractions that we saw. The tour guides were knowledgeable and extremely friendly and David was trapped—I mean contained—so I was able to relax and enjoy the tour. David really liked going under the bridges and since there are a plethora of bridges in Chicago, he was happy as well.
