Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at Red Tricycle Chicago? When we’re not writing about what you can do with your kids, we’re out there experiencing it. Our editor Kelly Aiglon went searching for fun with her twin boys this summer. As you can imagine, she didn’t need to look far. Water slides were coasted. Farmers’ markets were shopped. Playgrounds were romped. And naps were avoided like the plague (alas!). Flip through the photo album for a peek at all the highlights.

We Met Fairies

Lively sprites peeked out from the trees at Bristol Renaissance Faire. We were thrilled to share magical moments with them before heading to the arena to watch knights joust. Located off I-94, at the IL/WI border (847-395-7773 or renfaire.com)

What did you do this summer? Let us know in the Comments section below.
