Going to the Windy City

Tomorrow we are traveling to the city of my birth. The place where you can find neighborhoods where you don't have to speak English. The place where you can say "you guys" to a group of girls and no one gets offended. The place where you can find Italian Beefs. Its also where hotdogs dressed as a cave man and a women are completely normal.

I'm looking forward to it. I lived there when I was young, so of course every school field trip was downtown. Shedd's Aquarium, the Planetarium, the Field Museum, Sears Tower, Art Museum. When I was little my mom would even take me to these places for fun. She's a good Mom like that.

Now that we have moved away, we only go back every so often to visit family. We never hit the touristy spots anymore. So this weekend, that is what we are going to do. We're going to the museum and whatever else happens to strike our fancy. Plus, we get to go see family. Hurray for 1st Birthday Parties.

If you know of any must hit spots, comment please. Later guys.

Have a good trip!

I always love going 'home' which for me is our capital city of Ottawa. When I was young I couldn't wait to get out but the older I get the more I love going back. It's the comfort of the familiarity of the place.

I don't know Chicago at all. I've flown through a couple of times but never got out to look around. Is it really that windy?
