Me and my family LOVE going to Chicago. I love the food, Jennifer loves the shopping (I admit, I do also), the kids have fun at the Navy Pier and staying at the hotel. This marked the 5th time we've gone to Chicago; all around July 4th weekend! It's become somewhat of a tradition for us. We took the Amtrak train from Royal Oak and stayed from June 30th until July 4th; our longest stay so far! We enjoyed food, shopping, and of course pictures! Here is a compilation of photos I took while on the trip - not in chronological order - but I think it summarizes the trip in my eyes! Let me know what you think!
