Riding the rails
The boys have been asking to go on a train for some time now. We really intended to do this sooner, but the timing was perfect. We all had a great time.
We rode into Union Station, enjoyed looking at the river and watching the draw bridges go up and down as the sailboats passed through. Then we headed over to Willis Tower and since it was a clear day, decided to head to the top. The boys especially liked spotting U.S. Cellular Field and Soldier Field from on high. We had lunch in Union Station and headed home.
Every trip we make with Brett's wheel chair is a learning experience and we were really impressed with Metra. Our only bump in the road was when the only available elevator in Union Station broke down with about 15 minutes to catch the train we hoped to take home. Tate took the chair down the escalator while I took the boys. It all worked out in the end.

So many of our trips have the same happy ending
