Chi Town

We really enjoyed our trip to Chicago during Spring Break, but we have been beyond busy since then, I didn't have the time to deal with the pictures until now. 

We spent the first day at the Museum of Science and Industry, which is a huge museum, with lots of hands-on activities.  The kids enjoyed it, and it was a great way to spend a cold and snowy day.  After that, we checked in to our hotel, The Wyndam, then headed out for a quick meal before turning in.

The next day was spent eating, shopping, and walking. First stop after breakfast was the Lego store, which is Jacob's whole reason for going to Chicago.   Later, we had lunch at the Signature Room on th 95th floor of the John Hancock building, and had such a horrible experience, I'm not even going to go into it. 

Alex, Erin and I spent some time at the American Girl Place and Lush Cosmetics after lunch, while the boys went to the bookstore.  We had a snack at the Hershey Shop before heading to the Apple store.  After that, it was time to grab the car and head to our favorite pizza place for dinner.  Gino's East never fails to disappoint, and this time was no exception.  We left Chicago with happy faces and leftover pizza.

Here are some photos from our trip:

It is good to see your face again. Such blue eyes! I recall the first picture you put up it was of a Halloween party and you looked like Cher! I think you were going for Elvira though. lol (Or Morticia!)
