We arrived at Union Station just a little while ago and we are currently sitting in a Panera Bread right across the street from the Sear's Tower in downtown Chicago. We have a few hours to kill so we are roaming around taking everything in. Downtown Chicago is really beautiful. I think it is finally starting to sink in that we are going somewhere. It's amazing how long it takes for your brain to change gears.


  1. That is so awesome! I am so excited for you all...I hope you went to the top of the Sears Tower while you were right there.


  2. Hi Leighton and Gina! I hope your cross country adventure is going well. I look forward to your reports, keep them coming! I am so excited for your new adventure.


    PS I love the pic of Samuel and William in their packs :-)

  3. Hey Fam,

    It is so great to be able to follow you. Keep up the good work blogging frequently. Let us know how the train travel is and take care. Looking forward to the next post.

    Much Love... Bec
