Chi-town...pt. 1

A few weekends ago we took a quick 48 hr. trip to Chicago. It was made possible by Mark's parent's ;) and we had a wonderful time! We loaded up early Friday morning and headed North....

We got there about 2pm and checked into the hotel. We all got settled...the kids didn't waste anytime to begin playing. The love spending time together! 

After getting settled in we bundled up and headed to the Navy Pier. We planned to eat lunch and take the kids to a few fun shopping places. (American Girl, Lego, Disney) 

We all love Bubba Gumps and couldn't wait to get seated...it's such a fun place with a great atmosphere and awesome food.

After Bubba Gumps we were all ready for a little shopping. All the littles were so excited!!

LEGO STORE: Thanks to Maw Maw and Paw Paw everyone even got a special toy! 

We also went to the American Girl store as well. Sis was OVER THE TOP excited. She is really into babies right now so it was fun to see her running around picking up everything!

Last but not least we headed to the Disney store! The kids obviously had a blast there as well. It was also a momentousness trip as well. Sloaney girl got her first "real" Disney princess dress, Thanks to Aunt Shelly and Uncle Kyle!

After shopping we all walked back to the hotel. We ordered Chicago style pizza for dinner and had it delivered to the room. We hung out, played with our new toys, and enjoyed just being together with family! 


  1. Chicago is so beautiful! So cool to see you visiting all the places so close to me! I cannot wait to take my little girl to American Girl when she is a little older!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
