the parents visit // part 1

necklace c/o: Mourning Dove Jewelry

Saturday morning,
my parents arrived for a weekend visit from Tennessee.
Since it was a holiday weekend they have Monday off work & were able to make the drive! We weren't really planning too much to do but our days and hours filled up fast with fun activities! First we headed to lunch at Portillo's, then headed to a quaint little town one of my readers recommended, Glen Ellyn.. which I LOVED so thank you for sharing it with me! After that we headed to the outlets in Aurora... then headed back to relax at my parents hotel for a bit when Tyson let me know he was getting off work earlier then expected so we decided to go ahead with our previous plans to head downtown for the Navy Pier fireworks!

So we spent the night downtown eating dinner at Bubba Gumps, fireworks started at 10:15, then visited some shops on Navy Pier and let Lex ride the carousel! It was definitely the funnest day I have had here by far thanks to some good family time! stay tuned for the rest of our weekend festivities...
