This summer Joe and I took Sierra to Chicago to go to her first Cub's game. When we got to Chicago, we went to Shedd Aquarium. Sierra had a great time. She even got to participate in the dolphin show!
After the aquarium, we went to Navy Pier. Sierra wanted to ride the ferris wheel. So I took pictures from the top.
The next day we headed to Lincoln Park Zoo. It was very strange to go to a zoo in the middle of downtown. You walk around looking at the animals, and all around are super tall buildings. A strange experience.
After the zoo we introduced Sierra to deep-dish pizza at Gino's. She would make the trip again just for the pizza.
Sierra's least favorite thing is waiting. We waited outside the Cubs game for over an hour. Then we got inside and waited for batting practice to start. Batting practice went well for her. Mark Prior (Cubs pitcher) picked her out and threw her a ball.
About the time batting practice was finished, it started raining. It rained for hours. You couldn't possibly be wetter than we were. Eventually they called the game. We later learned that they would play a double-header the next day. We were able to get tickets for the next day (amazing!), so Sierra got to see 2 Cubs games.
The best part of the trip was letting Sierra play travel agent. We had her get online and research places she wanted to visit which really added to the experience for her.
