Summer 2011- Road Trip

Homeschool Philosophy: Einstein may have never
used flashcards, but he probably built forts.

Humble Dad's job had a conference in Chicago, so of course we became his tag-a-long. We hardly ever do things the easy way, I always have to spice it up a little bit. Hey, I like things spicy! So instead of traveling from Nashville to Chicago directly, we went from Nashville to Washington DC to Pittsburgh, PA to Cleveland, OH and finally we made it to Chicago, IL just in time for the week long conference.

No trip to Chicago is complete without visiting an Islamic Bookstore

I felt like the Jefferson's "Moving on up!" on the 33rd floor
of the Hyatt Regency overlooking the Riverwalk.

This building has never been owned by a Muslim, yet,
it has Medinah and Allah and other Quran on it.

Chicago has the Best Children's Museum!

We used our free Reading Six Flags Tickets in Chicago

Humble Daddy isn't so humble when it comes to races.
