Hey all Chicago mamas,<br>
Just wanted to say how much fun I've had meeting you MDC mamas! Thanks City Chic for getting it started! I know it's been hard getting all of us there at once, it's nice to have the opportunities available. I can't wait to meet all of you eventually!<br><br>
I was thinking of some other places to meet that would be fun for mamas and babies alike. I thought of some places: Peggy Notebart Nature Museum, Field Museum, Art Institute...<br>
Does anyone else have any other suggestions? Let's decide on our next outing!

It was great to meet you too! We are up for anything, the Art Institute might be particularly fun if there is an event at the Kodak Kids Gallery!<br><br><a href="http://www.artic.edu/aic/calendar/events.php?ProgramCategory=5" target="_blank">http://www.artic.edu/aic/calendar/ev...gramCategory=5</a>

I just saw the post about the Curio Cafe. We can also have a quiet meeting there if you want! We can all go for a walk around the neighborhood afterwards if we need to stretch our legs!

<div style="font-style:italic;">If we go to a museum, could we pick one of the free admissions days? I can't be the only one strapped for cash.</div>

I second this!

The only problem with that is that then they are PACKED, especially during the summer. If money is a concern, then parks are a much better choice.

We've had really good luck taking out the Museum Passes from the Chicago Public Library. They're on a first come, first served basis, but we've checked out the Field Museum one a few times now and you get the whole family in for free for the whole week.<br><br>
eta: Although we love the parks too, especially if there's water involved like at Belmont & Damen. Soooo nice when it gets super humid & hot out.

Well I accidentally flaked out last week...went to a birth on Monday and was a bit thrown off as for what day it was, and figured out it was indeed Wednesday and I was missing the zoo yet again well after the gathering time!<br><br>
Someday I will meet some MDC mamas.

Well, weather permitting, I'm already planning to go to the North Park Nature Center Monday at noon and Ardmore/Hollywood Beach Tuesday around 10 am. I could be persuaded to go to Foster beach if people want to meet up and need better parking.<br><br>
I'd be happy to exchange cell phone numbers via pm with anyone who's interested in doing either of those things.

I'm curious about the nature center. I've never been there. What does it have to offer? All I know about it is you can take your batteries there for recycling<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I can do Curio Cafe any morning except Tuesday (Doc appt). Does anyone else have a preference? I was thinking 10-ish...

After this week I will be game to get together<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br>
Theo (my 6yr old) is finishing his last week of Kindergarten this week and there are all kinds of things going on. Poor guy is so nervous about 1st grade <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: I promised I would be there for all of the end of year activities...hopefully that will help make him more comfortable....<br>
Does anyone have a 6yr old or around that age?<br>
We are not doing to do camp or anything and would love to make a playgroup kinda thing?<br><br>
Best Wishes!!!<br>
Rebecca<br>
P.S. Today2n is my daughter Gabbies 2nd Birthday Party! Wish me luck with the weather!
