We didn't have plans for what we would do or even where we would get off the train. The train had some issues and we were stopped for about 20 minutes, but soon we were back on our way. Since Lollapalooza was this weekend in Grant Park, we decided that we should avoid the downtown area with the kids and get off the Metra in Hyde park and walk by the Museum of Science and Industry to the beach. We thought about going to the museum, but the kids wanted to see the beach!
There were some pretty big waves in Lake Michigan, and despite both me and Andy telling the kids not to get their clothes wet because we didn't have spare clothes, they all got their clothes wet. Oh well, what can you expect?
We had a snack at Promontory Point, before heading back home.
