Home Leave 2015! Whitewater, WI - Chicago!

Staying in Whitewater put us just the right distance for road trips to Milwaukee, Madison, the Dells, and Chicago! The Pleva's planned a mini family reunion with Uncles, Aunts, Cousins, and all the new kiddos, outside Chicago one afternoon. 

Gramma Ruby's one wish for this visit with the granddaughters was to take them to the American Girl store in Chicago for brunch. All the girls, Piper, Kailey, Me, Jenny, and Gramma got all dressed up, with the appropriate dolls (or kitty), and headed down to Chi-Town!

Fancy girls with their friends

I have never been to an American Girl store. Wow. It was something! Piper had already decided she wanted a pet instead of a girl (I may have had a little something to do with that decision - have you seen how much those dolls are???) and she found the doggie section right away. 

We were seated for our brunch in a very large, elaborate room, complete with little high chairs, and tiny cups and saucers for the American girls that were joining us. 

It was quite the meal! We all very much enjoyed it!

After begging the grandparents to buy more accessories for the new doggie pets we visited the Lego store. Paul had a good time in here! 

Since we were in Chicago we had to walk down to Millenium Park to see the famous bean!

We even found a princess down there for Piper to take her picture with!

After our touring in the morning we had a great visit with all of Paul's extended family!
