We went for a quick trip to our favorite city — Chicago!
We stayed in a really fun hotel. There was free cocktail hour which my kids loved — nothing like all-you-can-drink Shirley Temples. Breakfast was a big buffet with made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit and lots of good stuff. My kids, they ate pink donuts. We spent a glorious, uncrowded day at the Field Museum. It fills my heart with pride that my kids can be captivated by 100 year old dioramas and much, much older bones. There was no whining or fighting, just rapt absorption of interesting artifacts.
Then froze as we walked the few short blocks back to the hotel. Our plans to go skating at Millennium Park were scrapped once we got a full introduction to the Chicago winds. Windy City, I love ya’ but I’ll be waiting ’til Spring before coming back.
