First Trip to Chicago!

This weekend we took Sweet Pea on her first trip! We drove 300 miles one way to visit Aunt Katie in Chicago. We were really apprehensive going on such a long trip because she pretty much HATES riding in the car. Much to our surprise, she was totally awesome for ALL 300 miles both ways (600 total!!!) We couldn't believe how great she did in the car. I'm pretty sure we have the best kid EVER!!! She sang songs, played with her Yo Gabba Gabba laptop (she squealed "Oooooh BABAAAA!" over and over - it never got old!), colored, and drew pictures.

We went to the Chicago Board of Trade, the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower), lots of cool restaurants, Lake Michigan beach, on bus rides, and on a train. She had her first cheeseburger on the way back home and loved it! I hope she didn't like it too much though, because I don't eat meat and we were hoping to get her to eat something so she'd fall asleep - which she didn't. Did I mention my kid doesn't fall asleep in the car like everyone else's? Seriously, on the way home she slept for the first 30 minutes, and that was it! Here's a few pics from our trip, enjoy!
