Once a week during the summer, I take the kids into the city for an outing.
The city is about 45 minutes away from our home in Alsip, illinois.
Chicago has lots of things to offer. Chicago has museums, shows, concerts, and art galleries. There is a lot of culture in the city and many things for the kids and I to see and do. The children’s museum is one of my favorite places to go. I took the kids to the children’s museum last tuesday. Tuesday is the one day during the week when kids can get in for free with an adult. Otherwise, the cost for all of us to go to the children’s museum is more than $100. The Chicago Zoo has a similar deal on Thursdays when children can get into the zoo for only a dollar. I look at all of the events happening in the area and then I plan the schedule for the kids for the week. We were supposed to go into the city on Thursday to go to the zoo, but I had to call an Alsip AC repair store instead after we got up and there was no air conditioning coming out of the vents. The thermostat was set and the machine was not running when it should have been. It was getting warm and uncomfortable so I called an Alsip AC repair center. The Alsip AC repair provider could not come until the afternoon to fix the problem, so we had to postpone our day at the zoo until the following week.
