We had a great time. Each trip has it's moments that make it that much more memorable...like how we booked a room that we thought was a two room suite, when it was really one huge room. (Unless you have more than 2-3 kids, you know what I'm talking about when I say that bedtimes aren't too smooth when you are all sharing a room.) Or how when you want to go to the Chicago zoo....you make sure that you get a hotel near the actual zoo. Chicago traffic is a nightmare.
The kids loved going to zoo. I dressed the kids in matching shirts and shorts to make them easy to see in a crowd. I recommend orange shirts to anyone with small kids going anywhere crowded! We spent the entire day there....we were sooo worn out! I can still hear Gideon's squeal as the sea lion swam by him over and over and over again!
I love that we were given the opportunity to make these sort of memories with our boys. They are still talking about the things they saw...though Nolan was disappointed there were no dinosaurs, lol.
Here are some pictures of our day :)
I think this is the only picture of all six of us!Jamison was happy as long as he had a never ending supply of Cheerios!
