Spoil-a-thon 2008

We did it. We survived 12 hours in the car, the hotel, the "L", the downtown mob, and we had a BLAST! I can officially say that A and J have never had so much fun in such a short amount of time! We shopped the American Girl Store (A got "Mia" and J picked out her own Bitty Baby), saw the Shedd Aquarium and The Museum of Science and Industry, Ooohed and Ahhhed at the top of the Hancock Building, rode the train, swam at the hotel pool, and had Chicago style deep dish pizza at Edwardo's! A huge thanks and big hugs to my sister (The Writer) and her family for coming along with us and making us laugh so much our sides hurt. Of course I took plenty of photos. I'll try to resist sharing them all ;)And as if the girls weren't thoroughly spoiled...as soon as we returned home we continued the Spoil-a-thon. What would Spring Break be without a trip downtown to see Disney's Princesses on Ice!

And now I must see to the piles of laundry and dirty dishes that have since accumulated! Be back soon to announce the winner of the FREE *take a bow* TEE and a few Easter pictures too!

OH HOW FUN!!! Looks like you guys had a blast in Chicago. Next time we should definitely plan to meet. This was a bad week for us as we had some sickies at the house then headed down to St. Louis to spend Easter weekend with family, which ended up producing more sickies.... UGH! It just doesn't end around here. But your photos have definitely brightened my day! Thanks for sharing. The girls look amazing in their matching Take-A-Bow's :) Lucky girls!!!
