Weekend in Chicago – day 1

After a week in Kenosha, we travelled to The Windy City, and spent a long weekend there. We had all been in Chicago before, but the kids were too young to remember much of it. We traveled with a limo from Kenosha to the hotel in Chicago – the kids loved it and it was so worth it.  P1010327


I love the cheesecakes at Cheesecake Factory, so after checking in to the hotel, we had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. I wish we had this restaurant in Norway….

We had nachos with chicken, the kids had the Oreo cheesecake and I had the Caramel Pecan Turtle cheesecake – so good.

After lunch we were ready to do some shopping and take a look around in this great city. We spend some time at the Lego store and the Adidas store at the Water Tower Place. P1010346

Our hotel had an indoor swimming pool, so we went for a swim the first evening, before settling in at our hotel room.
