Life Lessons Come in All Sizes.
We just wrapped up a couple of fun, family-filled days in the Windy City. It was our Last Blast of Summer — a little mini get-away before the kids begin the 2014/15 school year. We loaded up the Navigator — with 23 DVDs for our 4-hour trip — and established the ground rules: 1) No whining about sore feet, 2) Don’t be dicky.
It was a whirlwind of perfect weather, fabulous food, window shopping, double ear-piercing, Segway touring, Garrett’s popcorn eating, park visiting, and lakefront walking. The four bravest Willi ventured to the Willis Tower SkyDeck.
Willis Four Braving the Willis Tower SkyDeck. Redundant. 😉
The two not-so-brave Willi went to the Adler Planetarium instead… where we felt quite dumb and insignificant. The vast expanse of the universe can do that to you. Even the high-achieving, all-about-me 17-year-old said, “Wow. This is humbling.”
