The Windy City

The day after Christmas we decided to spend the weekend in Chicago. We left early Friday morning for the 5 hour drive. Along the way we stopped at Notre Dame so B and Mitch could check out the football stadium and check out the campus. What a awesome place!

After making it to Chicago, we checked into our Michigan Avenue hotel and spent the rest of the weekend walking around the city, checking out all the stadiums and of course shopping. Ali has been waiting for months to go to the American Girl Store and I was very excited to find the Hershey's store!!! Brandon and I wanted to take the kids to see the Blue Man Group but they weren't very interested and Ali and I had reservations to do lunch at the American Girl Store Cafe but realized that we didn't have the right clothes to wear and had to cancel. (maybe next time). We had such a fun weekend together and we even found out that Chicago really is WINDY!

How fun. I seriously almost started to cry reading this entry. I love Chicago. We lived there for 3 years and I loved, loved, loved going downtown!
