Chicago Trip

By October 1, 2009 No Comments

Eight Elkhart Crossing ladies boarded the Crossing bus this morning at 9 AM for an exciting day in the Windy City! A pan of wonderful cinnamon rolls made for a delicious breakfast on the ride there. Upon arrival, we visited Moody Bible Institute, traveling the tunnels on campus and scanning the city from the roof. It was chilly, but a brisk walk to the Hershey store on Michigan Avenue warmed us all up. We bought a bucket of chocolate to share (it came down these tubes from the ceiling when the girls turned some levers…too cool!!) and enjoyed a snack while we made our way to Giordano’s for Chicago’s finest pizza. After a very filling lunch, we hopped on the el and toured the city on a new level! We made a stop at Millennium Park just as the rain became steady and the girls had a great time taking pictures around the famous “bean” and other interesting statues and fountains. Like pros we grabbed the el back to Chicago Avenue and ducked into Starbucks to escape the now heavy rain. After warming up with some much needed coffee we hustled back through the city in the rain to our bus. The bus ride home was eventful and fun, and a fantastic conclusion to our trip. Thanks to all who made this trip possible. The girls had an awesome time (teachers included!). Waiting for the el train. More pictures to come!]]>
