Chicago- Part One

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a good start to your week! I finally got all of our Chicago pictures uploaded. We have so many so I am breaking them up into separate posts! We had such an amazing time, the boys were in the care of our parents and did perfect, I of course called home very often to check in on them and chat with Vincent...I just love to hear him say "MOM" and "DAD", it never gets old! I started teaching him the ABCs and it is by far the cutest thing ever...that is a lie...he makes the cutest "Toot, Toot" noise when we read his night time story "All Aboard for Dreamland". Oh how I love my little man, anyways back to the post.

CHICAGO, Alright here we go! We stayed at my favorite hotel, DoubleTree, why is it my favorite you ask...

Hello Double Tree cookies! This is why I love this hotel so much! They even gave me cookies when we left!

View from our window
After dinner we went to the lobby to plan the agenda for the next day...what was on the agenda you may ask. 

When most people think of Chicago, they think shopping, well we did zero of that. We molded our Saturday around visiting places from the scenes in Prison Break, it was one of our favorite series!

Well when we walked into the lobby we saw this...kind of awkward, this guy was taking pictures of his girlfriend sniffing roses. It was so funny to walk into went on for like 5 more minutes. 

Look you can see them in the background of our picture! Look over to the right side....

 I fell in love with this sweet fireplace..

We just went to bed after dinner. I was so excited to finally get to sleep through the night but I was still on Luke's schedule and was up every 1-2 hours lol! It was still a good nights sleep though!

Saturday late morning we went to lunch at the famous Gino's East Pizzeria! 

I had no clue what to expect but what I found was not what I could write on the walls! I LOVED IT! Next time I will be prepared with some hot pink paint markers!

Another Allie-gator got the wall!

I did my best with a pen over some whiteout lol

The pizzas took almost an was SO WORTH IT! YUMMMMM....

Jordy was the way he ate his pizza with a knife lol, you may wonder why....
He was playing with the candle wax and covered his fork in it for fun and then refused to use a new fork, so he knifed his way to a victory!
I will be ending here because little Luke just woke up screaming bloody murder....until next time...xoxo
