On Wednesday, we took the train downtown and spent the night in the city! As always, the kids had a lot of fun....I didn't take too many pics, but here are a few!
On the train...
Checking in at the hotel...LOVE this. Shane is being a stinker, Caleb is trying to get him in line, and Meredith is being, well, Meredith.
The view from our hotel window....if you know the story, you'll get it.
Quick snap of these sillies before letting them jump from bed to bed, which might actually be their favorite hotel activity!
Walking the Mag Mile....it was COLD.
Back at the hotel...watching Odd Squad in the hotel is for sure more exciting than watching it at home! ;)
|They love the Jacuzzi!|
Drying her hair. Love these pics.
Dinner at Rock Bottom...
|Checking out the brewing machines.|
|Meredith beating Daddy at a game while waiting for dinner...|
I woke up much earlier than everyone else (they've all been sleeping in which has been AWESOME)...so I walked to the nearest Starbucks for some coffee. It was COLD and windy!
Make-Your-Own waffles at the hotel...
Last night, some friends came over for NYE...the kids played and the adults even managed to get a game in. So fun, as always!
|Kris & John popping open the champagne.|
|Missing some kiddos...there were a total of 19 (I think?)|
|After the final guests left around 11, Shane fell asleep almost immediately while we cleaned up and watched the Chicago countdown at midnight.|
Happy New Year!
