and the El Train.
But I think her favorite part of the whole trip was having Aunt Kate and Uncle Paul ALL TO HERSELF!
Paul scored major points this trip - and may even be cooler than Katherine now in Megan's eyes! He carried her on his shoulders whenever we had to walk farther than 2 blocks. He raced her down street after street - to get her to walk some more! Took her "out deep" into Lake Michigan, jumped over the waves at the shore with her for hours, and dug a hole in the sand with his bare hands and flip flops big enough to bury her in! He never tired of playing hide and seek in the apartment and enjoyed sharing bowls of Lucky Charms with her in the mornings. He even left work in the middle of the day on Tuesday to meet us for lunch. Thank You for all your love and attention, Paul! You made Megan's trip SO much fun!
They live on the 9th floor and the highlight of each trip out (or back in) for Megan was getting to push all the elevator buttons!
More pics of her American Girl Party and our site seeing later this week. For now - here is a sneak peak of some of our FUN! She liked being taller than the Sears Tower!
