Spring Break Adventure #2–Union Station

Union Station is apparently a big spring break destination, as we ran into 3 other families there and heard of at least 1 other that was there that day too. We ended up going later than planned because Zachary threw up that morning! It was Passover and he ate matzah pizza every day for breakfast. That day he threw it up, and then asked for more. Ok then! He was fine, but we obviously waited awhile to make sure and headed out after lunch instead of early in the morning as we would have normally done! Our Union Station destination was the model train display. It is very fun and detailed and I enjoy it as much as the kids do!

We also went outside to look for trains, but we didn’t see any!

After all of that, we headed over to Crown Center’s Funville Exhibit – but you’ll have to come back next week when I will post Spring Break Adventures #3 for more about that!

Carrie Bradshaw has always been known for her great sense of fashion and this week on The Carrie Diaries is no different. At the beginning of episode 112: "A First Time for Everything" Carrie can be seen sporting the Up in the Tee Tops from ModCloth. A boldly patterned peplum top featuring a green tree atop a pattern of red, coral, and azure, Carrie could definitely use the calming effect this top can have after an interesting exchange with her boyfriend. Grab this fantastic frock today at ModCloth!

It looks like you had some awesomely fun days of spring break! I think Sofia would totally be interested in the trains too. She loves new things and anything that moves. And your swimming adventure--that indoor water park looks like fun! And a great escape from the cold weather.
