trip to Chicago

We had a great Labor Day week end.
We went to visit my sister in Chicago,
she was transferred from Paris
and now lives only 5 and half hours from us!
Well until we move.....
anybody interested in our house?

Anyway It was a lot of fun,
we spent most of our time at the beach!

It is hard to believe this is a lake!
I grew up by the English Channel
and it felt pretty similar, well at least for the temperature of the water!!

Of course that has never stopped any children!
They just loved it!
We had to return the next day with our swimsuit
to better enjoy the water and sand!

We managed to get a little shopping done....
we had to go the American Girls store

and the Lego store

Of course!

We managed to see a few nice buildings,

the architecture there is very interesting,
some real old houses and churches,
with exquisite details,
more for adults than children!

On our way back home,
we stopped at the Fair Oaks farms,
a huge dairy farm, with a good learning program.
It was interesting but the best part for my kids:
the climbing wall!

There is nothing wrong with getting your jolly climbing a huge bottle of milk!

Happy day!


  1. Glad you had a nice time in my neck of the woods. :-)

  2. Sounds like a great trip, especially visiting the American Girl Doll Store! I don't think people realize just how large are Great Lakes are until they see for themselves!


Merci pour vos commentaires, I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Here is my latest pillow, perfect for a late summer day, a sunflower with a modern twist from my choices of fabric: a mix of Halloween print...
