We drove to Moody since S had some work to do and the rest of us walked down to Water Tower place for our first stop – American Girl (a part of the tradition). So much stuff. So many dolls. So many outfits and accessories with dozens of little pieces.
A very technical survey shows that 66% of the munchkins actually enjoyed the visit.
33% did not.
He did get to choose something from the American Girl bakery counter, however, so that made things a little more pleasant.
But soon we were off to the John Hancock building. Although I had been up in the Hancock before, it’s been awhile because now everyone goes to the building previously known as the Sears Tower.
The lobby of the Hancock had a cool train set up.
Not too many people were in the observation area – again, I think it’s because everyone is across the city at the Willis, but actually, I liked the Hancock. You’re right in the middle of the skyscrapers and can see down Michigan Avenue and out onto the lake.
You can also see the Water tower.
