We decided to be brave this year and go on the annual Chicago shopping trip with my family. Ok, namely because Carsyn was just dying to go to the American Girl Place ;) I remember the Christmas I got my Samantha doll. Truthfully I might have been a little too old for her, but man I LOVED her. I read the books over and over and insisted we dress in matching outfits.
The American Girl place is truly amazing. I can't wait to take Carsyn back for tea and big girl stuff, but I was just happy to spend some time staring at the beautiful displays with her
So Maddox was not really a fan, but the Lego store was just upstairs and we took him to Navy Pier one day. He loved the pier and Carsyn pretty much napped the whole time. Prissy girl-she barely napped when we shopped!!
Oh, and Maddox's favorite part of the trip...playing with Carsyn at the hotel..
Carsyn's first cab ride!
I LOVE shopping on Michigan avenue..
(The American Girl Place)
(The Tory Burch store was so beautiful!)
I LOVE Giordanos pizza..
I LOVE snowy days..
(Trigger kept an eye on Maddox the whole trip)
I LOVE the Walnut room at Macys on State Street..
Basically, I LOVE Chicago-such a neat, neat city.
