AND I'm blogging! Did ya miss me? We did our 'dash out of town as SOON as our youngest is out of school' vacation. Literally! He got out at 1pm and we had a 5pm flight! Poor kid missed his field trip. Can you believe they had one the last day of school? to the WATER PARK! Only one of the year! If he went on the bus...he had to return on the bus....after 4pm....I'm still shaking my head. We could not pick him up at the water park even if we signed him out. (he IS OUR kid, right? I know there are legal liability issues, but we sign him out at school, he is OUR responsibility.) Only one more year at this charter school, then we can move on to the different issues of high school! (oh...I forgot..the REST of the school got out at 1pm...not 4pm..and if they didn't show up, no report cards)
I will be showing some pictures over a couple of day of the trip. If you are not a baseball fan, please turn your head at all the baseball park pictures! (there are really not too many!)
Our 1st stop was Chicago...and US Cellular Field (old park was called Commisky Park)
We didn't rent a car in Chicago, so we purchased 3 day transit passes and used the public transportation system. It was clean and reliable. I wish we had more in our area. We are miles from the nearest bus stop and it goes toward the city center and not to where I want to go!
Our trip to US Cellular Field was on the train...and...well...here is the park from the train! It was the best angle I could get of the whole field.
I have been trying to upload pictures for days! I guess its one at a time for a while...
