Rainforest Cafe

We had never taken the kids to Rainforest Cafe, so we decided to go downtown for lunch. You end up paying a lot for food that isn't that good, but the kids really liked the environment and now I can check that off the list:). It was fun to see the kids enjoy themselves and they were kind-of running all over the restaurant from animal to animal since there weren't that many people eating.

We had them sing to Vivi for her birthday, which embarrassed her tremendously (how can a 4 year old get embarrassed?). She's growing up too fast!!! Cliche but true. The last picture I was trying to get of Maya when all of a sudden the snake came down and she about jumped off of Tonio's shoulders. Poor baby, the animals were a little too realistic for her liking.

I love Chicago at Christmastime!! We saw the windows at Marshall Fields (ok, it is now Macy's, but still), and how they decorated State Street. The Christkindl German market was getting set up in Daley Plaza, and there were shoppers everywhere along the Magnificent Mile. I love Chicago.
