Family Getaway

Soleil will turn 19 on March 18th. All she really asked for was a Wii!  Instead of a party I was thinking we could take a little trip. That happens to be spring break weekend and I’m always hoping to put something affordable together to do as a family. Originally I was trying to organize a quick trip to the Wisconsin Dells (none of us have been) but that just didn’t give me enough time to plan.

Roger and the kids have not been to downtown Chicago to stay for the weekend so I think that’s what we are going to do! We will be leaving Friday, March 17th and returning Sunday, March 19th. There are so many websites to help with traveling but it’s hard to get a site that gives you the best price on every aspect: hotel, food and entertainment.  I’m excited to use a website: Time Out Chicago. It appears to cover everything  but I’m not sure if it includes competitive pricing but we shall soon find out!!

I’m hoping to get up there Friday and have time for dinner and maybe do something touristy that night. Saturday we will probably go to Navy Pier, Sears Tower, Sheds Aquarium and then I’m not sure: eat lots of good food and drink lots of good drinks!! On Sunday we will probably sleep until 10-11 and then grab some Chicago style pizza for lunch and then head back home!  Well, wish us luck, I’ll let you all know how it’s going and how it goes!
