Truthfully, I wasn’t good about taking pictures while we were in Chicago for my big annual trade show. Mom came along and watched Sylvan each day while I worked. The only Chicago pictures are of our friends The Graffs’ new baby Felix (5 months), and one of Sylvan and Gram playing on the big window sill in our hotel room. The other pictures here are from before we left (face washing) and after we got home (coloring). Sylvan and Gram visited many Chicago attractions in the afternoons, such as the Shedd Aquarium, Chicago Children’s Museum, Lincoln Park Zoo, Art Institute and Millenium Park. In the mornings they explored the Hotel Inter-Continental, where we stayed. This is not a kid-friendly hotel, but there are many floors to explore and they made the best of it. Many thanks to my mom for coming on the trip to spend time with Sylvan and me!!
