{family} Garnet Hill/ 5 Favorite Chicago Activities with Kids

I told him to say “cheese” and he said, I can’t have cheese. Truth. He’s lactose intollerant, ha!

Our weekend BBQ was rained out, but the food was almost too pretty to eat. Almost.

Just before it rained!

Sleeping beauties . . .
My kids are reeeeeally hard on their clothes. It’s rare for me not to find stains and holes in their leggings and jeans (that I may or may not have created myself, ha!) Nevertheless, I am always on the lookout for quality and great design on a budget, so I was pleased to find both at Garnet Hill. Their passion for quality, outstanding customer service, and great sales began with one couple in 1976, and continues today. You can read more here. As expected, the girls dresses got dirty this weekend at the boathouse, but I’m not too worried. Thanks to machine washable and durable blends, they’re ready for the next adventure which we hope will be Maggie Daley Park. But, let’s face it, as parents, you can only plan because you never know what’s going to happen, good or regretful.  Check out our favorite kid friendly destinations in Chicago below, leave your favorites in a comment, and the dresses and sandals shown here are currently on sale (up to 50% off) till July 15, 2015, score!
