Default Another trip?

Hey guys,

Do we want to look into scheduling another Chi-town area field trip? I was thinking we should look at the beginning of Feb. We could head west and hit the Rockford Children's museum or the one downtown on Navy Pier. There are other options, like the Museum of Science and Industry or the Field Museum also. I'm not sure those will be age appropriate for most of the kids though.

I just want to get the discussion going, since I know everyone's schedule fills up fast. Let the discussion begin.

Don't forget about the Dupage Children's museum in Naperville. That's pretty close to you guys.
MSI and the Field are very much age appropriate. My four year old loves them.
Tuesdays and Thursdays are best for me.

I couldn't make it downtown with the baby. Mommy doesn't like pumping all day.

DuPage would be much better for us.

DuPage is fine by me. We have a membership there and are there once a week during the winter. It is a great place for younger kids. I have classes w/ the kids Thurs. and Fri. Does a Tuesday work for everyone else?

Who knows. In a few weeks (when we're planning the trip) you may be itching to get out and the wife will be around for the newbie. It might be just the break you need.

If not, I enjoy planning this sort of thing. If you guys keep coming, I'll keep planning them.

Anybody want to go to Museum of Science and Industry next week? Still free admission for the rest of the month! (Not free to park)
Think I'll go on Tuesday the 29th. Or maybe tomorrow. Got a few free Tuesdays at the Adler Planetarium that I need to take advantage of as well. That place is expensive.

At this moment in time, it seems like the baby will NEVER get better. Even if he is well by next week, it might be not a good idea to take him. He's in really bad way....

I'll have to sit this one out.

Anybody listen to Justin Roberts with the kids? He's playing tomorrow in Downer's Grove. Just the thing to get out of the house on a cold day. Although tomorrow should feel positively balmy.
