Another long gap between posts – more busy excuses. Late nights at work, running, and a Billmeyer family weekend spent in Chicago! The highlight of the trip for Walter was the train ride there and back. You couldn't wipe the smile off his face.
We also saw lots of skyscrapers, of course, and went to the top of the Sears Tower – or the "serious" tower, as Walter calls it. (It's really called the Willis Tower these days, but I'm not ready to make that change.) Here's Walter refusing to turn around to take a photo with me. We had some trying moments over the weekend. He's three.
And he's a brave three-year-old, stepping fearlessly onto the glass hanging out over the city, 103 stories up.
We also visited the Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum, the Museum of Science and Industry and the Planetarium. Phew! Walter was attracted like a magnet to the trains. He's got a one-track mind.
Thanks, Gramma and Grampa!
