I wanted to plan one REALLY BIG THING for Grandma Camp 2018. What I decided (and could afford) was a mini-vacation to Chicago and THE BROOKFIELD ZOO..!!
The kids were excited to have Uncle Ross join us (he can do the driving!). It's a 3-hour drive. I booked a hotel that had an indoor swimming pool and a free breakfast.
|Lilly was trying to connect the Playaway book from the library (but I had the wrong cord)...|
|But we didn't have to worry about entertainment...both kids slept on the trip into the city.|
|Ross is an excellent driver. (and I'm an excellent sleeper)|
|At the hotel, the kids quickly discovered they had CUSTOM SUCKERS! (Thank you Marriott).|
|Hey -- riding in an elevator is a big adventure for a coupla country kids...|
|But our first day in the city will be spent IN THE POOL..!!|
|I DID remember to pack the pool noodles!!|
|Uncle Ross joined in the fun!!|
|Really. It was THAT MUCH FUN.|
