The boys and I headed downtown last Saturday while Ed was in Indiana. We had to come up with a car-free plan to get from home to Millennium Park.
Step 1: Ride the bike w/ bike trailer up the road to the bus stop. Lock bike up to bus stop sign.
Step 2: Take bus over to train station. Hang out at the Starbucks while we wait on our friends to show up.
Step 3: Meet friends. Stroll younger boys while older boys walk. Ride 2 trains to Downtown Chicago.
Step 4: Walk around downtown. Eat lunch at McDonald's. Head to Millennium Park and have a blast! Look at how much fun they had!!
Step 5: Do it all in reverse, except with two sleeping boys!! Joel sacked out in the stroller and Samuel in the mei tai carrier.
We had such a good time. We're thankful to live so close to a great city and to have made such great friends here.
