I had been on a tour with my wife and two other couples back in 2009, and I was hoping to see some of the newer parts of the park this time around. Unfortunately, the only new-to-me part was a trip through the visitors' locker room. The tour guide was super informative and I learned more about the history of Wrigley Field than I had previously. Plus, I got to see his World Series Championship ring up close and personal like!
I think my favorite part on this tour was sitting in the dugout, but I enjoyed taking pictures of some of the signage in the locker, too.

Instant replay slows the game, but it's here to stay. This sign is from 2015, which I guess means they haven't made any changes to the rules since then.
Park at Wrigley. It seems much bigger on TV and the snapshots I've seen on Twitter.
Next up we traveled to Schaumburg for lunch before hitting our next scheduled stop.
Lunch was awesome. I'm a big fan of biscuits and gravy and would highly recommend Gus' Diner if you have the opportunity. Large portion sizes and attentive service. #winning
We were out in Schaumburg because my sister got us tickets to the LEGO Convention. I haven't played around with LEGOs since my early high school years, but they are still something that genuinely interests me.
This place was crazy. I have to imagine this is what "The National" would be like if I could ever attend.
Thanks for stopping by and reading!
