This afternoon we’re heading out on our first family vacation in awhile and going to Chicago! We’ve been planning it for a few weeks now and Allie has gotten so excited about it. We’re going to do some swimming at the hotel, go to the aquarium and to Navy Pier. Allie has been carrying around her swimsuit all week!
Allie is so excited both for the swimming and aquarium. I don’t know which she will like better! We ask her what we’re going to see in ‘Cago (as she says it) and she enthusiastically shouts, “fishies and dolphins and whales!” We ask her where we’re going to see them, “the quarium.” What else are we going to do? “Go swimmin.” I just love the way she talks.
Last night we packed her suitcase before she went to bed. She picked out most of her clothes. First item packed, of course, was the swimsuit! She enjoyed wheeling her princess suitcase around the room a bit before we went to bed. Last time we went on a trip and packed her suitcase, she was upset because she thought we were leaving right then and there. That didn’t happen this time, thank goodness!
So Mama still has to work a couple hours this morning and then we’re off on our adventure. The blog has been pretty quiet lately, sorry. We’ve just been busy and there hasn’t been a whole lot going on. But I’ll have plenty to post when we get back! That reminds me I still need to get new batteries to put in the camera!
