Damian and I love heading up to Chicago when we can for shopping, restaurants and just to have fun. There’s so much to see and do there. We’ve never brought the kids before…it’s always been our getaway place. Plus we tend to do so much walking when we’re there that we were worried about bringing Bella. Well, we finally decided to bring them up and they loved it! I have admit there were moments of whining about tired feet, but we had a great time as a family. They loved the subway, the rooftop on our hotel, China town and of course “the bean”. And the cute dark haired guy is my brother. Without further ado, the photos!
Heading into the city on a cold, drizzly day
getting ready to head to lunch at the Rainforest Cafe-not so good food, but the kids LOVED it.
Just being silly
The hat that kept falling down
Waiting for the light to change
She found a horse to pet
I don’t know why, but they kept sitting on the escalators

Damian, AKA pack mule
Not sure if he’s a dinosaur or if he’s a kid about to be eaten by a dinosaur?
She’s a dinosaur
Last stop before home, Navy Pier
She might look nervous, but don’t be fooled. This girl has NO fear of heights and that scares me.
At the top of the ferris wheel
See if you can find Garrett, Christian and Damian
See them here?
She loves a merry-go-round!
