Rainforest Cafe

Hans and I decided it would be fun to take the boys to Rainforest Cafe in downtown Chicago.  I love that we live about an hour from the city.  It's a good distance.  We don't get the traffic and nonsense of the city and yet we are only a short drive away.  Have you tried to park in Chicago lately?  Be prepared just to hand over your wallet.  It was all worth it to see the boys faces as they walked around the restaurant.

 This huge fish tank is right by the entrance.  We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table and the boys just stood here the whole time.

 Anders is just happy all the time.

The boys loved this alligator and started growling at it when it would lift its head out of the water.

We had a great time.  My only complaint would be that, when our waitress came to take our drink order, she was holding a big plastic cup with a frog on it.  As if just holding the cup wasn't bad enough she said "Can I get you something to drink?  You can have it in this nice big frog cup."  Any kid is going to want the frog cup.  They just don't understand that the frog cup costs $15.  I understand that she was probably told to do this to boost sales, but I wish they wouldn't pit kids against their parents.  Don't we get enough of that as it is?
