|I love that some streets have honorary names!|
Kathrin and I are already planning our next trip back to one of the best streets in America. After spending the last 6 years in a nice smallish town, seeing how the other half lives was incredible - beautiful architecture, the hustle-bustle, just everything about it was so much fun to see. We were content just to walk around and take it all in.
The boys were totally intrigued with snow - as if they hadn't seen it before! I suppose sitting still on a train for 5+ hours had something to do with their energy. I might have yelled at them once or twice to "put the snow down and keep your hands dry". A mother never rests. So the boys improvised and started kicking a piece of ice....

It was almost surreal to walk around downtown Chicago. It was so big and so loud and so interesting.

We had a great trip and hope to do another train trip soon. The train is such a civilized way to travel. I'd like to see Washington DC and New York City. Any suggestions?
