We had a great time on vacation! Chicago was a lot of fun. We did a lot of sightseeing. We are officially exhausted.

We went to Field Museum (King Tut Exhibit), Shedd Aquarium, Museum of Science and Industry (My favorite), Hancock Tower, Navy Pier, Ukrainian village, Water Tower Mall (Not impressed). We also went to the beach. The kids were so excited as it was their first visit to a "beach". Unfortunately, the water was "Closed" due to high levels of bacteria.

The taste of Chicago was also going on, that was cool.

President Bush met us there for a visit so he and Delaney could celebrate their birthdays together. Okay, we didn't meet him but he was there and they do share a birthday. So does Aunt Toby! Happy Birthday!

Delaney was officially initiated to Chicago by being "Christened" by a pigeon. We talked to a native and he said in all his years there, that had only happened twice to him. I guess Delaney is just lucky????

We returned to St. Louis for a day so we could see the Arch and Paul's sister.

It was fun but you really appreciate home when you are gone for awhile!

Wow, looks like you had a great time! Love the pictures! Makes me miss Chicago even more! I love the picture of Delaney with the ladybug. Chicago beach sand is kind of rough, huh? That was all I knew until I felt some real sand out east! Ha!
