Our Weekend Away

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Sean and I went on our first solo trip since Wyatt's birth. We started planning several months ago but, honestly, nothing prepares you for leaving your EBF 9 month old. Ha. I knew Wyatt would be great but I was so worried about Stella. Their Mimi and Pop took such good care of them and they both had a great time. I don't think they even knew we were gone!
Sean and I headed up to Chicago on Wednesday morning.
 We stopped in STL for lunch at BOGART'S and continued on. We arrived in CHI around 5:30 and thankfully the traffic wasn't bad at all. We made it to our HOTEL and then headed out for sightseeing and dinner. We ate at LOU MALNATI'S and then headed to a movie. We hadn't been to a movie since Stella's been born so it was a big deal. Ha!
It was so nice to leisurely stroll back to our hotel after the movie. We enjoyed taking in all the nighttime sights of the city.
 We got up Thursday morning for some more sightseeing. We visited Cloud Gate (AKA, The Bean), Chicago Public Library Foundation, and took the train to the Museum of Science and Industry. We finished out our day in the city with a late lunch at PETTERINO'S and quick stop at Starbucks.

We then drove south about an hour to Tinley Park where we were seeing Deftones and Incubus in concert that night. Unfortunately I had a migraine when we arrived at the hotel but had some time to take medicine and a get a quick nap. And thankfully felt much better by concert time!

We had an awesome time and felt like we were in our early 20s again! It was just what we needed and we're already talking about when we're going to take the kids to Chicago. There's so much fun stuff to do!
