Last weekend took the kids to Chicago which is our favorite city. Two full weeks of no school created cries of boredom every 20 minutes from our kids. Despite the fact they got plenty of Christmas presents they were still bugging us to go away. So we packed them up and headed to an action packed three days in Chicago. We went to the John Hancock Center, Cheesecake factory, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, My American Girl, Lego Store, and Navy Pier. I planned all these fun and amazing things to do but you can never predict the things kids will like. Ellie was like “Buddy the Elf”. She was obsessed with every revolving door in the city, and every time we turned around she was in the lobby of some hotel that had a fancy spinning door on the front. She begged us to see the Mummies at the Field museum but then refused to come in the exhibit because she thought the mummies would pop out of their sarcophagus and get her. Jack pretty much just enjoyed every place we ate, the cafeteria at Navy Pier, the Cheesecake factory, the vending machines in the Field museum, and the magical free breakfast at our hotel. I almost made him sit at a different table when he came back from the buffets with like 80 pieces of sausage on his plate like a link-n-log tower. Hopefully the experience was memorable to them both. We love making them smile and creating great memories. Ian took the puffer fish picture, I think it was smiling at him.
