Chicago Children's Museum

Continuing on our vacation in Chicago, last Thursday my niece Lorren and I took the kiddos to the Chicago Children's Museum at Navy Pier. Neither of us had been inside so I really excited to take the kiddos (Lorren is included in that part by the way).

It was pretty packed when we got there with all of the field trips, but after we grabbed some lunch everything died down and we had an amazing time! The first floor has a room where you can build forts out of furniture and sheets and a fire station. I think the fire station was the kiddos favorite by far. Upstairs there were several rooms, one was a kids town, an outdoorsy kind of room, a water room, a puppet theater and a creation lab.

I really wish Scott could have seen how much fun the kids had. It took everything for Lorren and I to get them out of there, but our next stop was just as exciting! We went to visit Auntie Tay Tay at work!

My sisters office has floor to ceiling windows and is right on the river so the kids were in seventh heaven watching everything happening outside. Jill was even the little businesswoman asking everyone what they were doing and where they were going. Nothing like having to explain yourself to an almost 3 year old, right?

Still more to come about our vacation! Lots more :)

Sounds like so much fun! I've lived in Chicago, but never seen it with a kid. Something to look forward to!
