On our way to Iowa, we stayed a night in Chicago. We spent most of our time in Millenium Park, admiring all the art installations, playing the in water features and the boys checking out the skate park.
Iowa was of course filled with all sorts of cute moments. Reed loved having the mix of teen activity and family time and of course new travel adventures! Blossom soaked up all the attention from being the only little one there!
The return trip took us through St. Louis where we explored City Museum, which is basically a super fun big kid/adult playground. Giant slides and ferris wheel on the roof, even!
It's so fun taking a trip with a kid who is so easy-going and finds the beauty even in the empty field next to the hotel!
