Zelda Takes The Museum of Science and Industry

As a parent, I totally get that a lot of child-based activities can become monotonous (maybe even a little boring if I’m being honest) and over-played. We all get into our routines and visit the same parks or the same museums, even when there’s nothing new happening. We’re really just always on the lookout for any kind of fun activity …

The Ultimate Guide to Chicago’s Greektown

In a fast paced world that is always changing, Spiro and I think it's important for Zelda have a strong understanding of her heritage.

The Kid’s Suite at the Swissotel

Zelda and I fell in love with Swissotel during the holidays last year, when we visited their insane Santa Suite.
