Our trip to Chicago

Chicago is definitely one of my favorite cities of the US, so versatile and incredibly beautiful..
We were there for 5 days and I can say that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...it was a great trip...
We visited the Morton Arboretum in Naperville, IL, where we saw a bunch of pretty trees and flowers and the girls enjoyed the many playgrounds... so awesome..


 On another day, we visited downtown Chicago and saw some very neat things, like the new Marilyn Monroe statue that was put right in front of the Chicago Tribune building just a few weeks ago.. so cool...
 ...we also walked around the city and enjoyed the beautiful scenery...


 ...we had the opportunity to visit The Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears tower), one of the tallest buildings in the world with awesome observatories and amazing views of the cities... Olivia was fascinated with the experience... and so were we...
...we also visited Millenium Park and a few other hot spots in the city... it was such an amazing trip...I didn't want to come back.. ha ha!
