Well, I came home from Chicago last night. It was a great trip, and I ate like a gourmet! On Sunday, werode the train to Chicago for six hours! Then we unpacked our stuff at our hotel, the Embassy Suites, and ate a a place called Lawry's Prime Rib. I had lobster ravioli andvanilla ice cream with hot fudge for dinner! Then we took a walk around the block and hit the sack for the night. Dad and Mom were astonished that people were eating outside at 8 o'clock at night! They'd be ransacked in Detroit. Or the tables would be stolen. On Monday, we took a boat tour of the Chicago River and the buildings around it.Then we took a free-but-crowded trolley to Navy Pier, an old navy base that has been turned into a theme park.We explored the peir, and Dad and my sis and Iwent into an attraction called "Amazing Chicago". It's basically a fun house that has a house of mirrors, a narrow passageway, a spinning tunnel, and a ton of facts about Chicago. For example, did you know that toy poodles are banned in opera houses in Chicago? Well, it was something like that. Also, my sisshouted "Danielle!" to me after a foghorn blewfor a few seconds. Then we cracked up... Man, my family's weird.Anyhow, we went to a seafood place for dinner, where I had tasty New England clam chowder and one and a half pounds of king crab! To top it off, I had chocolate ice cream with more hot fudge! :P Yum! Then we headed back for the hotel for the night. On Tuesday, Mom and my sis and I went to American Girl Place in Chicago. I really won't go into detail about that trip because there's lots of boys on this sight, but if anyone's interested, just PM me, okay? That night, we went to Gino's East Pizzaria where I had a big plate of baked pasta and cheese sticks! Then on Wendsday, Mom and my sis and I went to see the musical Wicked, while my dad and my brother saw a Cubs vs. Giants baseball games. Wicked was really good, and the Cubs won their baseball came. Then we met up again for dinner at the Weber Grill, where I had grilled jumbo shrimp (and believe me, they aren't called "Jumbo" for nothing!) and garlic mashed potatoes. I finished off the meal with a sweet treat: Chocolate cake, ice cream, and even more hot fudge! Lastly, on Thursday, we took the train home. It took about 8 hours this time because there was a lot of... Train traffic. We didn't get home until about 10 PM. I was so tired I flopped into bed and fell asleep. Well, that about raps our trip to Chicago. If you have any questions, just PM me.
