Brick city

After leaving Detroit on Saturday, we spent a few hours in Ann Arbor and then drove on to Chicago. And what did we choose to do in that city of big shoulders and fascinating labor history? That's right, we drove out to the suburbs to visit the Legoland Discovery Center in Schaumburg:

There was a Lego Obama:

And a replica of the downtown Chicago skyline (later in the day, we had dinner with a friend and trade union brother who took us on a guided tour of the real skyline)

Of course there was a place to build your own Lego city buildings:

And, what theme park (even one in a suburban mall) would be complete without a ride (the things they are riding in are replicas of a certain Lego vehicle, and they pedal to raise themselves up):
