Captured: A slice of Chicago

A slice of Chicago

When my older son turned 13, we spent a weekend in Chicago together, just he and I. We visited the Museum of Science and Industry, ate deep-dish pizza at Gino’s East, slept at the posh Palmer House Hotel, and went to the top of the John Hancock Building to see the city. We had a great time.

My younger son turns 13 today, and we’ve been talking about the Chicago trip we’ll take together. The Museum of Science and Industry will certainly make the itinerary, but we’ll definitely skip the pizza because my boy doesn’t like cheese. Beyond that anything goes. Maybe we’ll ride the Ferris wheel on Navy Pier or watch the White Sox play. But whatever we choose, it will be great just to be with him.

  1. Does your son like BBQ’d ribs? They’ve got some of the very best at ESPN Zone. That’s where my son and I went on our “just the two of us” trip to Chicago, and he’s still raving about them!! Happy B-day to the new teenager!

  2. I like to take the train to Chicago or to drive up to where the Metra starts and take that into town. It is a lot more pleasant than dealing with traffic and parking.

    • I like to take the train, too. I’m from South Bend. When my youngest and I go, we’ll drive up there (where my extended family still lives) and then take the South Shore into town. So much easier than messing with my car in downtown Chicago.
