So this past weekend Riley and I flew out to Chicago for my sister's wedding. We met up with my parents and brother at the airport then headed to the hotel. Naturally, we got stuck in the horrendous traffic but we finally made it and settled in. Our first stop was the Rainforest Cafe, where Riley was just so excited to be that she asked to go back every night!
After that we headed back to the hotel for the night. The next day we got up early, grabbed some Starbucks coffee and hot cocoa next to the hotel - Riley had her own card so she was so excited!- then we started the trek to the American Girl store on Michigan Avenue. It was nice being so close downtown!
After the American Girl store we got tickets for the Chicago Trolley Hop on Hop off bus and took it around downtown to see the sights. We of course stopped to see the bean, stopped for some cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery, then headed back to the hotel to rest up before dinner.
We even got a chance to stop at the Chicago Children's Museum - my sister got us free passes (thanks sis!) and it was the most amazing kids museum I've ever been to!
