Each summer, we spend a few weeks in Central Illinois with family. Last summer, we planned a 2 day trip to Chicago - a place the kids can't wait to go back to. The trip was so fantastic, I had to post about it over several days - the museums, the food, the heights (oh my) and the fun were all too much for just one little post.
So, here is a snippet of our trip to the Windy City last summer.......
Yes. You are looking at a 3-story eyeball, cleverly titled the "Eye". Why? Good question. It is a temporary exhibit in downtown Chicago that the kids & I found fascinating. Amid a bunch of tall buildings, the L clattering by and many business people sits this odd sculpture called art. I didn't get it, but that's ok- it was fun to take a picture of.
And then we found the "art" I'd been looking forward to the most. This is Cloud Gate located in Millennium Park. But you can call it the "Bean". That's what the locals call it.
