A Spring Break Stay-cation was on the agenda for Evelyn, Duncan and baby sister, Piper. The trio of merry-makers have plans to see some of the best that Cream City has to offer during Evelyn’s school vacation. The family kicked off the festivities with trip to The Pfister Hotel.
Often, when people think of the hotel, they envision elegant parties, corporate events and fine dining- all of which is true, but it can be a fun retreat for families as well. Just a hop, skip and a jump from both Betty Brinn Children’s Museum and Discovery World, the hotel is a great home base for young explorers and their families. Our small guests can always find kid-friendly fare in the hotel’s Café, and there are even options for them to enjoy Afternoon Tea. Best of all, the hotel has something tiny travelers adore: a swimming pool! Kids and their grown ups can’t wait to grab their swimsuits and enjoy the warm water and beautiful views from the hotel’s 23rd floor.
This group of water enthusiasts were eager to show off all they’ve learned from their swimming lessons in the hotel pool. As luck would have it, the siblings had the pool to themselves, so there was plenty of space to practice their budding cannonballs, underwater swimming, and, of course, the benchmark of all sibling water outings: the splash contest!
After a morning of Pfister fun that included a brief stop to the Artist’s Studio and a quick treat in the Cafe, the group headed into the sunshine and down the avenue for some interactive entertainment in the Milwaukee Public Library’s Children’s Room. On the agenda the week is a jumping good time at Monkey Joes, Piper’s first Brewer game!, a fun Easter Egg hunt with friends, a family gathering for the holidays- and, of course, more swimming!
