We decided – somewhat last minute – to drive to Chicago Sunday morning for a day trip to the Museum of Science and Industry. We were all very impressed with the museum’s range of child-friendly exhibits. Becca was asked to be a helper for a short lesson on tornadoes. The baby chicks at the hatchery found Madeline super compelling. Becca was not impressed with the lack of vegetarian options at the museum cafeteria.
I was a bit nervous about navigating the city and parking and my kids behaving, but overall it was a perfect trip during a spell of cold weather. We had no plans going on at home and…why not? One day they won’t want to hang out with us all the time….
