chicago




we had a blast in Chicago with awesome weather and fun activities. Just Paige and I went as we needed some girl time just us. When Laine was in the hospital in December I told her when Laine was better we would do something just her and I. She loves Chicago and picked it. (I got very nervous Saturday that we might not be able to go... Laine started complaining about her leg and had a fever. I took her to the Dr. for lab work and was given instructions for us to take her to the ER if her fever rose higher or if she started limping... Her labs were not normal on Saturday and the Dr wants to see her tomorrow to discuss more testing....Sunday though she seemed better and Paige and I took our chances, we needed this time....and we could have always come home if we needed to, and hubby takes great care of Laine.....) Anyhoo.....We packed in so much fun in 2 days. On Sunday we went to American Girl, shopping along Michigan Ave, Crate and Barrel, Apple, Lego, Sephora and lots other. We had coffee at a great little place called the Corner Bakery. We went back to the hotel in the late afternoon and went to the pool and sat in the hot tub and relaxed for a bit. Then we walked around downtown and they still had all the lights and everything...so pretty. We headed to Cheesecake Factory for dinner which so so yummy. Then back to the room to watch some Olympics which we both love. This morning we went for breakfast and then to Shedd Aquarium and the Art Institute and more shopping. We so needed this time together. We were both a little sad on the train ride home as we didn't want it to end. What memories. She is such a sweet girl and so funny too. She talks a mile a minute when she is excited which is the cutest thing ever. I love her to pieces.
Headed back to the Dr for Laine in the morning to see what any next steps are for her pain and fever. Hoping she can have testing that will give us good and accurate results.
