If you have been reading this blog for a few years, then you know every year at Christmas time we try to head to Chicago for the day. This started as a variation of a tradition I enjoyed as a kid, I then introduced Adam to it, and now the kids beg to go every year.
I so enjoy driving to the big city. It takes around 2 hours to get there plus a time change for us, but it is well worth it!
Next up was a walk across the street to hop on the cow in front of the Cultural Center. I used to frequent this amazing building when I went to school a few blocks away. The kids always have fun sitting on top. This year, we decided to take the kids inside to check it out.
Then it was time to bundle up again, although the weather was perfect, and head a few blocks west to Daley Plaza to check out the German Christmas Village. We always get a few things to eat, and the hot spiced wine to drink out of the special mugs.
Al's before heading for home.
I know, I know....why the heck has it taken me this long to post about things that happened in November and December. Honestly, I don't know. But here is a quick run down on the last 2 months of our 2014.
D received a beautiful teacup and saucer from her Grandma, so we HAD to have a tea party.
