Leaving On A Jetplane

chicago

I'm off to the "Windy City" (Chicago) with my parents today, an early flight (6am!!!) to catch an aunt's 50th birthday party scheduled at noontime. It's my first time flying to Chicago because we usually opt to drive 12 hours on the road to visit relatives there. Road trips are more fun! The last time I was in Chicago was two summers ago.

We have a layover in Detroit, then arrive at Chicago's Midway Airport around 9am.

We'll hang around till my own birthday on the 28th, then fly back to Jersey on the 30th.

I really want to see the shiny "Cloud Gate" sculpture at Millennium Park. Not sure if that's gonna happen when lots of relatives will want to see us at their homes. Illinois is so big and they live far apart from each other that it's always at least an hour to get from one house to another.

But I'm not complaining. I really didn't expect to spend my birthday in Chicago this year!

Hope you have fun! Just remember that their blocks aren't like normal blocks and the miracle mile is more like 12 miracle miles.
