we are headed to the windy city for five days. a nice little get away before the big kids come home (on august 4th...YAY!) and before this little lady turns two (on august 20th) and she can no longer fly for free. i have only passed through chicago before so this will be my first time getting to experience the city. have any of you been there? live there? any tips you can share? must go places to see, awesome shops and yummy restaurants to visit? i would love to hear the skinny.
we have yet to find a place to stay, eek! my cousin lizzie works at the four seasons (i know... how rad is that?) but they are booked solid and even with her awesome family discount it would have been quite a chunk of change to stay there. i'd rather use that money to splurge on play and eat delicious food. we are still searching for a place downtown near all the action.
today is for packing and wrapping up some important must-do things before we leave. thanks again for your chicago recommendations.
