We took a two day trip to Chicago. We went to Firehouse 51 where they film parts of Chicago Fire. It is one of Kylie’s favorite shows and a total surprise for her.
The main reason we went was to see the Cubs play at Wrigley Field. The Cubs Are Kylie’s favorite team and I have always wanted to go to Wrigley. Of course, you have to have a Chicago dog.
It was an exciting game. The Cubs were winning 5-2 in the 8th inning. A lot of the fans left and Kylie and I snuck up to the field seats. We watched the last inning from nine rows from the field. The Padres came back in the top of the ninth and made it 5-4. Baez had to throw out a runner at the plate to keep it from being tied and the Cubs won.
Kylie wanted to go see “the bean.” I think she was almost as excited to see it as she was the Cubs.
Oh by the way, Kim rode the train with us from our hotel to Wrigley then she ran down Addison Street to Lakefront Trail and ran all the way to the Navy Pier and back to our hotel while we were at the game. Almost ten miles. She enjoyed running someplace new and enjoyed the time alone until we got back from the game.
That evening we went to the Navy Pier. The next day we took a bike ride down the Lakefront Trail before we headed back to Ohio.
Kylie started her cross country season and ran a race supporting the team. She finished four minutes faster this year than last year for this same 5k.
She starts her last year of middle school tomorrow and turned 13 yesterday so big things in store for her.
Enjoy the pics.
