Last week, spur of the moment, we decided to book a hotel and take the kids to the city for shopping, eating out and swimming. Overall, it went really well and we said we should make it an annual thing! Because we went Tuesday/Wednesday when not everyone is off school, the rates were great and the crowds were practically non-existent - plus all of the Christmas lights/decorations were up. It was perfect! We didn't accomplish a whole lot, but it was relaxing fun which was just what we needed.
The crew on the steps of the water station. It was COLD.
Gibson at FoodLife with his waffle - a place that serves a ton of different options, including breakfast for lunch, is perfect for our family!
Wells at Water Tower Place.
Checking out a girl at the Lego Store.
Gibson's face lit up when he saw IronMan.
Our one photo of the American Girl store - she was not the happiest camper because she wanted to buy a doll (go figure!). Little does she know, Papa & Rara are giving her one for Christmas!
An afternoon treat at the Hershey's store.
We went to Grand Lux for dinner and sat in the circular room to see the lights on Michigan Avenue. The kids loved the Wiki Stix and made glasses out of them.
On Wednesday, we went to an early showing of Frozen (so good!), stopped at Gap and then headed home. Gibson literally wore his Wiki glasses everywhere. My little fashion guy. :)
