I’m a teacher, turned stay-at-home mom to six-month-old Cecelia. We spend our days in search of social activities for both mom and baby that don’t break the bank. Fall is our favorite season in Chicago and I’m looking forward to sharing it with our little one! I’m most looking forward to treating a costumed Cecelia to a carousel ride at the not-so-spooky Boo! At the Zoo at Brookfield Zoo (and maybe even entering her dressed as an elephant in the themed costume contest), learning about colors along a stroll through the changing leaves at Morton Arboretum, and bundling up for a hayride at West Chicago’s Sonny Acres fall festival.
