Yesterday morning, at 4:45 our alarm clock went off. Jumping out of bed, we were all ready to walk out the door 6 minutes ahead of schedule. Where were we going? The Windy City. My grandmother decided to take Jessica, Melissa and I on a train ride up to Chicago and spend the day there. We had a blast, caught our train, made it there with no complications and had a wonderful day that we'll never forget. After a roller coaster taxi ride, we walked up and down the Magnificent Mile, discovered the park area, ate at an Italian restaurant, had ice cream and bought souvenirs. The day passed by much to quickly and we're all ready to do it again. :) Enjoy the pictures we snapped along the way!
The lovely morning view.
We asked another passenger to take a photo of us with our very humorous, kind and wonderful attendant in the snack car. The trip wouldn't have been the same without him!
Here we are taking self portraits under the bridge. As we walked away, all of the people who had passed us while doing this, were taking pictures themselves!
We were passing by the Fire Dept. and two fire fighters called us in to see their engine...sorry, truck. Those helmets are really heavy...
