We wanted to go downtown to see the Zoo lights, the windows at Marshall Field's (yes, I know it is Macy's but it will always be Fields to me) and the tree at Millennium Park. We started our trip on the L which is always a fun ride for N2. For some reason I always end up taking pictures of them while riding. Here Natalie is imitating an ad she saw on the L of a singer.
We started by going to see the windows and the tree in the Walnut room. As a kid I always loved to see the windows and it was so exciting to see what the theme would be. They were always so intricate and told a fairy tale story. If I had known what the windows were going to be this year, I would have just skipped them. What a let down! Each window had a theme like "dream," "love," "believe" and were supposed to be decorated to fit that word. Look at how creepy this one is.
After riding the escalators up and down (what a treat!) we went to Millennium Park to see the large Christmas tree. We had heard that a tree was being cut down and donated from a resident of Wauconda. It was a big deal around our small town!
