Day 1: flight from hell. Note to self: do not fly with toddler without buying him a seat into which you can strap him and his car seat, no matter how much it costs. Also, I will also never again be scheduling a flight right in the middle of Henry's nap time. It's been over a year now since Henry has had a napless day, and I now know why I've blocked those days out of my memory. All being said, he handled the travel (and lack of a nap) like a champ.
I had dinner with two of my favorite girlfriends, Sarah and Beth, and John had dinner with two of his favorite guy friends, Jim and Jeff. All around a good first night in town.

Oh, and I had lunch with some more of the best girls I know - Sam, Susan, and Nicole - in the West Loop. Miss those gals!
|Enjoying our view from our room (or what you can see of it through all the kid handprints on the window)|
|Henry's first bus ride! He's mesmerized and will never be the same.|
|We paid $14 per person to get into the Children's Museum, and Henry just wants to play with trucks. Lovely.|
|Being silly with Steph and Scott before bed.|
|Playing outside with our new obsession, the school bus. He didn't let go of it all day long. I had to pry it out of his little hand at bedtime!|
|Miss this view.|
|Dinner at Rockwell's.|
