Franklin on Train 2014-09-09

Franklin enjoying his coffee on the train ride into Chicago.

On September 9th, Franklin, my family and I went to Chicago, IL. We rode the train to get there. The train was fast and quiet. I learned about people who work on trains and things that are attached to the trains.

After we got off the train, we went on the bus to go to Wrigley Field. When we got to Wrigley Field we took a tour, and learned about the history of the field. We also got to see the locker rooms, the press box, and go on the field. Did you know that Wrigley Field is the second oldest ballpark in the U.S.?

Soon after that we got on the subway; Franklin says take the train instead. The subway was really crowded and really bumpy. When we got off the subway, we went to Soldier Field (Bears stadium). It was very interesting. Bears stadium has a really big fountain.

Then we took a taxi to the Magnificent Mile where we went to the Cheesecake Factory for supper. Then we went to the Ohio Street Beach to overlook the water for a few minutes. The beach probably would be fun if we stayed there longer.

Then we took a taxi home.

  1. It sounds like you had quite an adventure in Chicago. What kinds of things are attached to the trains? I like trains a lot. Did you enjoy it?

  2. Dear Aunt Marlene- Some of the things that are attached to trains are a pullman, boxcar, caboose and the engine. I enjoyed the train ride.
