Day in the City

Since we've moved to Chicago, we haven't really gotten to explore the city we love as much as we'd like to. Chicago can be an expensive place, so we had to get creative. For Leo's birthday back in October, we managed a really nice trip for about $10.

We took the "L" downtown which was our only expense  for about $10 round trip (kids were free). Louie loved looking at the buildings and even made a new friend. He was so sweet and loved Louie's company.

We then stopped at the Harold Washington Library Center and read some books to the kids and walked around this huge library!

Then we walked through Grant Park and over to Buckingham Fountain for a lunch that I packed for us at home. Louie had a blast chasing the birds and admiring the fountain and buildings. We love our city and its beautiful architecture against the amazing parks and lake view never cease to impress us! We just enjoyed the views the rest of the afternoon, it was very nice! Best of all, we only spent about $10 the whole day!
