For our first day of spring break Timmy was off school, but Henry still had his weekly mom & tot class, which I attend with him. We dropped Timmy & Flynn off with Grandma D and headed to class.
After class we went to pick the crew up and headed out to Des Plaines (near O'Hare) to hit up one of our favorite locals, The Choo Choo restaurant. The boys were so excited to have their food delivered by trains. This place is seriously a gold mine! Of course I forgot my camera, so phone pics it was!
We had big plans to go to Navy Pier to visit the Children's Museum & Build-a-Bear Workshop, but Grandma D ended up getting sick, and I just wasn't up for it that day. Timmy was bummed, but later in the day I tried to make up for it by taking the boys to the library, then picking them up and taking them for a delicious dinner at Portillo's downtown. Hotdogs and milkshakes cure everything!
No pics for today! We had our sitter come over to chill with the babe and the boys and I went to the movies to see Mr. Peabody & Sherman. It was a bit over their heads, but it was still a fun outing!
Well today I decided to be super mom. Grandma D was still sick, but I didn't let that deter me and I took all 3 boys to Shedd Aquarium by myself. They were actually really well behaved, and we got there early enough that it wasn't a complete madhouse. It was pretty packed since all of the private and parochial schools were on spring break, but we got there early and left around lunch time when it really started to get crazy, so it worked out. The boys had a blast which I loved. The lighting in there is totally weird so all my pictures turned out terrible, but I figure most people don't care about that! They just like to see the boys having fun!
Ooh, and as a much needed Thursday bonus, the boys got some desperately needed haircuts after nap!
This was a very special day for Timmy. He's been really wanting to go to the Lego Discovery Center in Schaumberg. Really he wants to go to actual Legoland (as do I, it's part of my dream kiddo vacay! i'll post about that later!), but since flying to San Diego wasn't in the cards the Chicago burbs had to do! This is more of a big guy activity, so Tim took the afternoon off work and came home to take Timmy on a special date. Judging by the pictures Tim sent me they had an amazing time!
We ended the week with a fun lunch at the Rainforest Cafe with our good buddies Katy, Audrey, and CC. The boys were so excited to see the girls, and mostly excited to see Rainforest Cafe. Henry was a little bit freaked out, but Flynn & Timmy liked it!
So, our Staycation was mostly a ton of fun. And don't worry - by Tuesday I called secured Grandma Kiki & Grandpa John's Florida house for next year! lol. Super fun, but next year let's have some warmth!!!
