Going through old pre-digital era photos is fun. Having to turn the sleeves full of old prints forces me to slow down and remember in a way that scrolling through digital photos on my computer simply doesn’t allow.
Which leads me to today’s road trip post. I couldn’t stop at just one photo album. And, since Abby wasn’t even born during that trip to Yellowstone, it is only fair that I look at another road trip, one that included the four of us.
And here it is: We drove from the Twin Cities to Chicago with a three-year-old and a 16-year-old.
And we liked driving to Chicago so much we did it again the following year. We visited the the Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum, took a boat ride to see the Chicago skyline, ate at outdoor cafes. We walked to the Pier and rode the ferris wheel. Shawn skateboarded. We saw the Chicago Bulls return to their hometown amidst a big celebration. We all got along, even when Abby didn’t think Shawn should look out her window in the car.
It might be time to go there again.
