Spring Break 2012: Springfield, IL

Amy and I took the kids to Springfield, IL for a Spring Break trip in March.  There were so many great things about the trip.  For starters, the train ride was lovely- the kids loved the snack car, we loved that we could have a glass of wine on the the 2 hour ride.  The kids were great the whole time, very little complaining and just good bonding time.  We definitely need to go back!

Everyone in their elegant poses in the lobby of the hotel.

The Lincoln Museum was amazing- exceeded my expectations.  There was a 3D hologram show that amazed all of us.  Max was afraid he was going to have nightmares because he was sure it was a ghost.

We actually ate really well for most meals.  We found this cute cafe for lunch one day.

Lincoln's Hat- not really, apparently there are only 2 real hats of Lincolns and they are in museums.

Fun int he elevator after swimming.

Dinner at Spagos- we were the only ones in the restaurant with children but the kids were great.  We got a great meal and got to see all sorts of Illinois government big wigs walking in and out of the back room.  

I think Max's favorite part of the trip was the buffet breakfast which included his own pot of hot tea that he got to make each morning.
