Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge

I had the day off work today so we decided to make the most of it since it was so nice outside.  This morning we walked over the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge for the first time.  We have been meaning to do if for quite some time but just never got around to it. 

We decided to let Lily walk and push Marley in the stroller... about a quarter of the way back Lily started to tucker out and wanted to sit down in the middle of the bridge.  She then ended up in daddys arms...

After walking across the bridge we were headed to Gene Leahy Mall but there was a school bus there with a TON of kids so we decided to just park and walk to go have lunch somewhere in the Old Market.  We had a nice lunch at Old Chicago then headed home.  Lily was so tired I ended up letting her watch part of a Care Bears movie on the way home so she would stay awake...

Soon after I gave her the phone she started bobbing her head and the phone was falling out of her hands... it was so cute... she kept waking herself up trying to keep her eyes on the screen to see her movie.  We made it home before she fell asleep and now she is in bed snoozing away :)


  1. Looks like a fun time...and great pictures!! Did you hit the playground on the IA side? I'm not sure what is over there as we have not been to the bridge yet this year. In the summer, there is a fun little splash area for the kids right at the foot of the bridge that can be fun. Looks like you all had fun!

  2. We did have fun. We did not visit the playground, it is still a bit of a jaunt from the end of the bridge and there is a lot of construction going on yet. The fountain wasn't up and running yet, maybe next time!
