Baby Tours Chicago

As a mom who loves travel, I'm often contemplating questions like:
  • What's the best age to visit Disney?
  • I wonder how old the boys should be when we head out west?
  • Are they old enough for a 10+ hour car trip?
A couple of week ago, I did reach one conclusion: the best age for a trip to the big city. It's 4 months.

We ditched Big Arrow with family back home and took Little Arrow to Chicago so that I could get some blogging work done (by work, I mean visiting museums, taking pictures, getting some video, eating out... it's a rough life, I tell ya!)

More on why we headed back to the Windy City to come, but I loved getting to see big city life through the eyes of a baby. Here are a few of his thoughts on Chicago:

The El: It's loud.

The Field Museum: It's big.

The Skyline: Worth a look.

The Art Institute of Chicago: Boring. (His parents respectfully disagree.)

The SkyDeck on the top of the Willis Tower: Eh. I'd rather nap.

Playing airplane with Dad: Now THIS is exciting!

If you're missing Big Arrow, you can read his 3rd Birthday post from yesterday here.

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby and Friday Daydreaming at R We There Yet Mom.


  1. That last photo is so, so cool! Looks like a fun time!

  2. Love Baby Arrow's perspective!!

  3. LOL. LOVE this set of pictures. I tell you four month olds have it made. If something is boring, you just take a nap. What I wouldn't give to be able to do that in my day.

  4. PRECIOUS!!!!! I love the post! Thanks for linking up with us - glad Little Arrow enjoyed the BIG city!!

  5. Cute, cute, cute! Nice to see pics of my old hometown, too. It's never too soon to get kids out traveling.

  6. These pictures are too adorable and such precious memories of Little Arrow's trip to the big city. Love the last picture. I miss the times when they can be carried everywhere in the carrier =)
