|The Ferris Wheel|
Thursday morning we packed up the car and did the 3 hour drive to Chicago. I had fun playing games like "headbands" in the car. When we arrived, the first thing we did was go to Navy Pier. I had wanted to go to Navy Pier when I was there earlier in the week, but there was no time, so this worked out perfectly. We did the swings first (which, by the way, is my favorite ride); Navy Pier has really good swings that go high and fast. I love the feeling of flying through the air with my hair blowing, my shoes off, and the sun shining down on me. Afterwards, we went on the ferris wheel. The first ferris wheel was actually made for the World's Fair when it was held in Chicago. It was so fun to ride all the way up to the top and see the beautiful skyline of Chicago, and the lovely blue of Lake Michigan.

Now I'm thinking that I need to find a cheesecake recipe that tastes just like that one!
I loved this trip because everything was new and different—it just shows how much Chicago has to offer! I had such a fun time. Thank you Petersens!
