So who out there is familiar with the Chicago area? I have a little boy turning seven this summer and at some point we will be in Chicago and I want to take him out for a little treat. We are thinking cupcakes--where are your favorite bakeries? Are any of them more kid-friendly than others? Reasonably priced or expensive but worth it?
Any must-see things while we are there (if we have time)? So far, our must-do list includes Legoland, Science and Industry, and Navy Pier. Our would-like-to list also includes the Field Museum and finding a great park (our kids do not think a vacation is complete without visiting at least one new and awesome park). Any suggestions fit for a seven, three, and not-quite-one year old?
