Our family trip to Chicago (two weeks after my fun girls trip) was exactly what we Foxes needed. Lego, our favorite hotel*, fantastic food and drinks - both high and low - and an exhausting but wonderful trip to the Museum of Science and Industry for BDF's 8th birthday. Whew!
*The Drake Hotel is old school in the best way and I absolutely adore it. All trips to Chicago as child included The Drake in some way (an overnight stay in one of their oversized rooms, dinner at The Cape Cod Room, afternoon tea in the Palm Court and so on) and I have so many lovely memories of the iconic hotel. This time, I snapped a pic of the initials of Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio carved into the bar by the famous couple.
