James went downtown to work his last day while I finished packing up the kids and getting the three of us to the Metra for our downtown commute. James met us at Ogilvie train station and we began our day of walking! We met up with a friend for lunch at a Thai place, hit James’ old office to grab our suitcase and say hellos (and goodbyes!) and began our walk to our hotel. We checked in, hung out for a little bit, then began exploring the Magnificent Mile! We hit up Crate and Barrel, the Disney Store and Trader Joe’s before heading back to our room for the evening to swim, eat dinner, watch a movie and enjoy some hot cocoa. It was nice! Though it was hard to settle down and fall asleep…the city is really loud and busy and the kids aren’t used to that anymore. Here are some shots from our first day:
