Headin' Downtown

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.

That looks like so much fun, although I know it takes work to get kids downtown like that - especially without Ed! There's some days that I'm exhausted and we haven't even left yet :). But, I'm always glad afterwards that I got out and took the kids places. You look wonderful Leah and I love the wrap too!
