Downtown and our last goodbyes!
On July 30th, we braved downtown Chicago for one last play date with Grandma before she had to fly home. Now that the girls are older, it is more expensive to ride the train than to pay $30 for parking, so we hopped in the car and braved the drive through Chicago traffic. To our surprise, we found a really ghetto parking lot that only charged $8 a day!!! Woohoo!We were already off to a great start.
Once we parked, we started our walking tour through the city. We were able to stroll down Michigan Ave, check out the famous Bean, see the Lions at the Art Institute, view some more abstract art at Millennium Park, listen to the WORST concert I've ever heard at the outdoor amphitheater, and stroll through the beautiful botanical gardens.
To wrap up our day of fun, we played in the fountains at the park and then had some Subway sandwiches before heading home to say goodbye to Grandma.
We had so much fun with Grandma Uda and are SOOOO grateful for all she did and all she does for us. Thanks for the good memories mom. You are the BEST!
