We had a wonderful time in Chicago on the band trip. We pulled into Chicago Thursday morning, ate breakfast, and headed to Shedd Aquarium-- had a fun time there. Next up was Navy Pier for lunch and we had dinner at the Medieval Times. That was a fun show, we all enjoyed it.
The next day we head to Wrigley Field for a tour, enjoyed a river boat tour, had pizza at Gino's and had a fun time at the Blue Man Show. Saturday morning was the band performance/ competition, after that we head back down town for lunch, Amy went shopping at The American Girl Store. Then we looked out at Chicago from the John Hancock Observatory, beautiful views. Walked around down by the bean. We headed to the awards ceremony and the band won two awards, after dinner, we headed over to see Les Misérables. That ended at 11:45 and we were back on the road for the trip home. I'd love to go back and stay downtown, we stayed in the suburbs and the drive in with all the traffic was crazy. Kansas City traffic has nothing on Chicago.
