Vacation Gone Awry Part 2

In my last posts “Thankful Thursday” and “Vacation Gone Awry“,  I began to detail our recent adventures in Chicago.  The following post will continue our journey:

After our delicious meal and World Cup enjoyment at Timothy O’Toole’s Pub (not to mention the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale™ that would have left the @ReformedPubcast speechless);  we headed out to Michigan Avenue for some intense window shopping.

The boys were thrilled to discover the multi-story pinnacle of their sportswear longings!   Then we found the girls’ dream store!

We were officially ready to “veg”, so we headed back to Embassy Suites Chicago Lakefront.  Check out our nighttime view!

We couldn’t believe it when the fireworks started at Navy Pier!

We eventually went to sleep, exhausted from a day that was filled with adventure, twists and turns!

The next morning, we were beyond pleased with the complimentary breakfast at Embassy Suites.

Look at the deliciousness!

5 kids, 2 adults and complimentary all-you-can-eat breakfast is the perfect combination!

After swimming in the gorgeous pool, we checked out; checked our bags, and were delighted to learn that the porters had located us a taxi van so we could all ride together!

Tomorrow’s post will continue our Chicago Getaway.
