Kelsey Goes to Chicago

 A Journey Girl's Trip to Chicago

The Journey Girls love to explore and experience new adventures as they travel.  Kelsey took her first trip to the Windy City.  She is so excited to go on a trip.  She starts packing days in advance.  

"What should I bring?" she thinks.  "Probably plenty of warm things….it is after all winter,"


 She packs some sweaters, jeans, pants, some warm tights, and a skirt (optimistic that there might be some warmer weather).  Everything fits snugly into her suitcase.  She even has extra room in her suitcase for some new things she hopes to buy on the Miracle Mile.


Once she has everything packed, Kelsey takes her suitcase downstairs. waves good-bye, and heads out to the car for the six hour trip to Chicago.


All strapped in for the ride.  Kelsey loves road trips.  She loves seeing all of the scenery.  It's beautiful seeing all the trees, rock faces, and even the farm land is amazing to see.  She plays on her iPhone and texts Meredith to see what she's up to.


Eventually, Kelsey makes it to the hotel.  She unpacks her suitcase and settles in for the evening.  She is so excited to go see the sites of the city.  She wants to walk the Miracle Mile, see the shops, and hopefully find some neat things in the shops.  Then maybe go to Millennium Park…see the bean, the sculptures, the gardens, and just walk around the park.  If the weather is okay Kelsey thinks she may even stop by Navy Pier.  Tonight, she has to sleep….and that seems like a really good idea.  Kelsey yawns, puts her head down, and falls asleep.

Check back this weekend for more of Kelsey's Chicago adventure!

I found your blog through another site. I think yours is the first Journey Girls blog I've found. I have just one JG, Taryn. I love her to bits and am getting ready to post about my bigger ladies.

I love your posts and can't wait to see more of Kelsey's trip

Farrah,
Thanks! She is excited.

A girl and her dolls,
The dresser is actually a music box I found at Goodwill. It works great for Kelsey though.

Dollz4Moi,
I'm glad you found us. Taryn is really cute. I have Chavonne (Taryn was renamed and her eyes were darkened). Check out the Journey Girl Facebook page too.

Hi there:

I love love Love your blog - it is so well thought out, and your pictures are just beautiful. I always look forward to your posts, and you have encouraged me to get a Journey Girl for my daughter. :)

On a separate note: I was wondering where Kelsey got her beautiful winter coat and scarf?

Thanks so much.

Glad you like the blog. I hope your daughter loves her Journey Girl. Make sure to check out the Journey Girls Facebook page for updates and photos. You can even share your own photos there!

Kelsey's jacket and scarf are from a stuffed bear I found at a thrift store. It fits her perfectly though!
