Chicago is just a kick-ass town for a weekend getaway. Plenty of shopping, food, bars, nightlife, you name it. We managed to get in some Magnificent Mile time and introduced Bridget to her first full experience at the American Girl store. She opted to pick out her own doll with brown hair, blue eyes and freckles - just like her. She shopped for her doll's outfits and I even sprung for a pet for her American Girl doll. She was thrilled. Meg enjoyed the shopping as well and managed to snag some great deals at Nordstrom. Even Greg found a new murse (excuse me, man bag) at Tumi.
If you've never ventured out to Kuma's for their burgers, you really must. May possibly have one of the best craft beer lists in Chicago as well. Worth the trip!
And if you stay in Chicago, be sure and check out the Kimpton hotels. They get customer service right. The manager's reception included complimentary Sangria and the morning coffee is to die for. I love the in-room yoga with complimentary yoga mat and they provide maps with distances for runners. Greg and I enjoyed a nice 3.5 mile run along Michigan Avenue to the Lakeshore. Hot, but so worth it.
Great weekend and great family fun!
