Chris had to head to Chicago this week for a tradeshow, so the kids and I decided to tag along. What really made the decision easy for me was that he was staying at an Embassy Suites. Staying in a suite comparing to one hotel room makes such a difference when you are traveling with kids. We have spent many nights trying to get kids to sleep in hotel rooms and have still never figured out the best way to do it. It usually ends up with Chris and I and one or more kids waiting for the others to fall asleep. Plus Chris' work schedule wasn't too demanding for the time that we were there so he was able to enjoy the sights a little with us too. We went to Lincoln Park Zoo, Navy Pier, shopping on Michigan Ave., Shedd's Aquarium, and the Rainforest Cafe all in three days. It was a lot of fun but I am glad to be home. It is not wasy carting around three kids 5 and under in downtown Chicago!
We borrowed a sit and stand stroller and most of the time all 3 kids ended up on it. I felt like a little bit of a freakshow walking down the streets of Chicago. I don't think anyone has more that one kid in Chicago.
