One of the things I like best about where I live is the proximity to the city of Chicago. Whether it is a car drive or a train ride, going to the city is so much fun. Although now, I plan my trips to the city more for my little guy than for myself.
This week the Museum of Science and Industry is free. Yesterday my little man and I, along with Gramps, went to the museum. Opting to drive rather than taking the train (due to schedule conflict) we managed to enjoy six fun filled hours of creativity, imagination, and learning. From being coal miners to passengers on the Zephyr, we didn't miss an exhibit.
I love watching my son interact with his grandparents. It is so important that he has a relationship with them. Prior to my divorce, my little guy did not spend a lot of time with his maternal grandparents, however things are different now and that is all that really matters.
