Having my parents here visiting for the weekend and having to say bye to them,
just keeps reminding me that FAMILY is the most single important thing in life.
I cherish all of the memories we make especially when they are made with the ones we love most!
It's always hard saying bye, now days it seems it's hardest for Mimi & Lexi.. :)
Lexi is truly their little shadows when they around!
the last day of our memorial day weekend,
we headed downtown,
had lunch at the cutest little industrial designed pizzeria called Lou Malnati's..
I'm not a Chicago style pizza kinda girl so I opted for the thin crust which was still good!
After lunch we headed to Sears Tower,
where we stood in a two hour line with a bazillion other tourist to reach the 103rd floor and braved stepping out on the ledge! I am soo afraid of heights so I am still kinda shocked I went through with it.. and to all my surprises my dad is the one who was most hesitant.. because he doesn't trust the construction builders but my parents braved it too!
Then we headed back to my parents hotel and let Lexi swim awhile then headed to dinner at Uncle Julio's! We were all wiped out after dinner and met back up to say our goodbyes at breakfast!
tourist tips //
+Head to North Chicago around the Mariano Plaza for some good eateries if you are ever visiting Chicago!
+Don't go to the Sears Tower on a holiday weekend if you can avoid it.. we were crammed in there like sardines and trusted that they do pay attention to weight limits for that ledge :)
