After we drove around forever trying to find somewhere to park our 15 passenger van (oddly enough, there are plenty of parking garages in Chicago, but with clearances of only 6 or 7 feet.) we finally found a great spot on the side of the road at a meter.
Have I mentioned that it was COLD?
I don't know why this picture turned out so dark. I've got to get a new camera.
The reason they wanted to go to the Water Tower Place is because that is where the American Girl Place is!
We had never been to an American Girl Place before, and it was very exciting. I started liking the American Girls back when they used to be mainly history based and we used Molly to study WW2 back when Brittany was in first grade. Now, they have strayed quite a bit from the beginning, but are still fun none the less.
The Place was quite impressive. In addition to anything and everything you could possibly need for your American Girl, there was also a salon, restaurant, and Main Street.
Here we stopped on Main Street for a sweet treat.
