Oh, Chicago! You were so good to us! We seriously had the best time! The last time I was here I was barely pregnant with Bennett. First stop was The Navy Pier. I think Bennett really enjoyed himself until he had a meltdown in the Fun House. Then he screamed while trying to Houdini escape the stroller… getting crazy stares from every single person we passed who were probably secretly (or not so secretly) telling me to get my kid in check… but nevertheless, we got some cute pictures before the terrible twos took over.
The condo we rented had some pretty incredible views…
Impromptu photo shoot with my boys in their matching lobster jammies.
Saturday was spent showering the bride-to-be! My cousin Kelly is getting married in July so we decided to do her shower and bachelorette party on the same day, and sure enough it was the most perfect day! We showered her with gifts and love at Orso’s Italian. The setting was so beautiful out on their pergola covered patio, saturated with vines and vividly colored flowers. About 30 of her fabulous friends joined us, it was such a success!
That night we went out on the town with something like sixteen of Kelly’s closest girlfriends, checking out a drag show at The Original Mother’s… absolutely hysterical! So much fun! Then we moved over to The Rec Room, which only played what my mom would call “my generations music” or “music from my day”. Again, us ladies had a freakin blast!
Remember the first time we visited Millennium Park? It was freezing!! This time the weather was absolutely perfect! And having our boys with us made it so much fun! We checked out Maggie Dailey Park with one of the biggest playgrounds I have ever seen & the “Enchanted Forest” which had a mirror maze and balance beams throughout. AND the Play Garden had one of the best views of the entire skyline! Highly recommend for all families visiting Chicago to check this place out, it’s incredible!
Thank you, Chicago, for treating us soo well! The weather, the food, and the kind people were all a lovely treat for Memorial Day Weekend!
