May 12: Chicago, IL

Upon arrival at Indiana Dunes NP we soon realized that there was a train only a short drive away that we could take into Chicago. One thing about our kids is: anything to do with transportation is considered super-fun, so a train ride to Chicago was a no-brainer. So, on Wednesday Richard took the day off. In typical Ambulare-Family style, we took FOREVER to get out the door, so we were hoofing it to catch the train on time, but we made it!

Chicago dogs!!!!!!!

The zoo was free, so I thought that would be fun for the kids. Unfortunately it was a bit of a disappointment. Masks were still required, even outdoors, and there were very few animals out and about. Oh well, you can’t win them all! We had a good walk to get there after taking the Chicago “L” train (another bucket list item that should be on the list of any “While You Were Sleeping” fan!) It was fun seeing homes that are so different from those in our part of the U.S.A.

The Bean!!!
