Our FIRST train ride: Chicago here we come!
Daydreaming about a special doll that would soon be in her hands!
First stop: The BEAN
Can you spot our little family?
Carson loved all the sirens and duplicated their noise quite well.
Making the four mile hike through downtown and along Michigan Avenue...I love this picture!
Here we come, Kit!
Fun photo opp with the newest American Girl!
McClain was a little overwhelmed with the pink...the dolls...the frills...the girls.
Cloe was pure excitement!
"How much did we just spend on a doll?"
(Cloe actually patiently saved up birthday money.)
A little Pizza Deux for lunch. We love Chicago style stuffed pizza!
Our server really took a liking to our children. She brought Cloe this huge chocolate chip cookie ice cream sundae as a "congratulations" on getting her new doll!
Carson is reenacting getting his arm stuck in the chair. We thought we were going to have to rip the chair apart for awhile! Thank goodness, the server (who liked us) brought out some slippery lotion to help weasel his arm out!
The kids did so well walking back to the train and enduring all the photo opps I was trying to capture!
A special, memorable day for our favorite seven year old little girl!
Now on to Wisconsin...
