After staying indoors for about two weeks straight, I decided to pack up and take off to Chicago and visit family. It was nothing short of fun (and stressful!). Today Chicago reached 53ºF so we decided to hit the road. After about an hour drive we stopped and had lunch, which took about another hour or so. So by the time we got to the city (from the suburbs) and had lunch, the weather felt like it literally dropped 20º and it was very windy. Anyone with young children knows how stressful and tough it can be having a fun day in cold weather. And I have 2 under 2! So we decided to do a little shopping after lunch then had some fun inside Starbucks with our barista friends!
