We're (translation: I am) planning a family trip to Chicago in June. It will only be a long weekend, but I am so excited about this. First, I heart Chicago. It's a super fun city with generally friendly people. There's a ton to do, and of course, the food is great. The last few trips I've made to Chicago were for business, so I was limited to the hotel, the convention center, and the occasional dinner out. Now that I'm going for pleasure, I'm not sure what to do! With a 4 year old, a 3 month old, and a husband who doesn't like to contribute to the planning process (but who will pout like nobody's business if he doesn't like what's going on), I'm a little overwhelmed at trying to plan for 2 1/2 days in Chi-town. I'm thinking Lincoln Park Zoo, Navy Pier (ferris wheel, Children's Museum), maybe American Girl Place, a visit to H & M if I can sneak it in ..... and I'm a little stumped at what else. Any suggestions? I don't need to have every minute planned out, but a general idea & a few options are always good to have in one's pocket. (oh, and of course I have a cupcake shop on my list: Molly's Cupcakes, as found on the "No One Puts Cupcake in a Corner: blog). What do YOU like to do in Chicago?

We also love Chicago. We've been a few times and it is always so much fun. Shed's Aquarium is supposed to be awesome but we have never made it, and going to the top of the John Hancock was fun. We also love to eat Chicago style pizza and Garrett's popcorn found on Michigan Ave.

Have fun!

Mm, I haven't really had a good visit there. We went for a quick weekend but it was also for business.

I am excited to hear what you decide to do!
