We had a fun weekend celebrating Billy’s 9th birthday mixed in with a little St. Patricks Day celebration. We tried to convince Billy that they dyed the river green for him since it’s his favorite color but I don’t think he cared what the reason was, he thought it was pretty great. Downtown Chicago is one of my favorite places, I don’t think you can run out of new places to explore, there’s so much to do! I love that the weather is warming up and we can get outside and explore this new place we call home.
While we were downtown we went to The Doughnut Vault. Billy’s obsessed with donuts and is determined to try all the donut shops in Chicago, it’s going to take a while! We’ve heard that The Doughnut Vault has the best donuts in Chicago so we thought we’d give it a go. The line was long, super long, like wrapped around the block long but we were determined to try it and see if it lives up to the hype. They didn’t disappoint, they were delish! So if you’re in Chicago and craving donuts look them up and try them out. We also love Stan’s Donuts and I think Firecakes Donuts is my favorite but they have an ice cream donut so that’s almost cheating! Do-Rite Donuts will be our next donut stop.
