Sunday morning, we had plans to go to the top of the
Sears Willis Tower. Even though I’d been to Chicago twice before, I’d never been up there!
Laurie explained that the Willis is known as the King, and this crown building is the Queen! They kind of do look like they’d be in love, I suppose.
We thought we had VIP tickets, but apparently there was still a long line. Oops!
I had a flight to catch in a few hours, so we convinced the employees to take us up the back freight elevators to bypass the movie and the crowds. Not sure how, but it worked! Up to the top we go!
My mom is afraid of heights, but she did really well! Good job, mom!
Looking down at the “Queen”! My, she’s short!
They also have these glass boxes that jut out of the building that you can stand in. SO cool!
And no, my mom did NOT go on this. LOL
Why do both of my sisters pose so well for the camera and then when it’s my turn I do this?! No seriously, Why?!
I guess that’s my ta-da pose or something.
How amazing is this picture?! So neat! Sisters in the city!
Shortly after this, we had a fun leisurely lunch just chatting about anything and everything. It was so nice and relaxing. Then it was time for me to go. Sad, I know. There were definitely tears on the “L” platform, but we were all so happy to have a fun weekend together!
It’s a shame that such a nice weekend would end with such a horrible airline experience. Stay tuned for that trainwreck of a story!
What did I miss in Chicago? Have you been there? I’m making a list for next time!
I’ve been to Navy Pier already. Anything else? I love that town!
