It was an awesome weekend. The kids had a few meltdowns, there were tears, there was some whining, there were two emergency trips to KMart, but, there was also....
Animals at the Lincoln Park Zoo
Aunt Emmy's Favorite Pizza at Pizano's
The Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier (Ben, your secret's safe with me)
Dippin' Dots and Family Fun at Navy Pier
The LEGOS store
And... the CTA bus!
P.S. A few great quotes from the kids:
- Zoe (while walking into my place): "Aunt Emmy, is this a hotel?"
- AJ (while on the bus): "Aun Em-eh, you are so pretty. I love you."
- Zoe (as we're leaving my place): "Aunt Emmy, that's your pink pepper spray. You spray the bad guys with that.... in the FACE!!!"
- Zoe (after being told she can't eat in my bed): "Aunt Emmy, why are there so many special rules at your house?"
THANK YOU Big Brother!!! I love you!
