And You Can Feel It Swaying

We finally got to take the boys to Chicago. This is something we've been wanting to do for a long time, and it was worth the wait. The weather was great. The hotel was free. The fear factor was unparalleled in St. Louis.

Take for example this:

Nice view, eh?

How about this view?

Or this one, which was a little hard for me to enjoy with Jack's death grip and the feel of the building swaying ever so slightly.

If you need some perspective, this should provide it for you:

Or this view from the ground, showing the boxes in which we were standing:

So if you are in Chicago and need an adrenaline rush, head to the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower.

And be sure to take the City Pass with you. Our wait went from 2 hours to 2 minutes with our special tickets.

Gack! I couldn't even put one foot on the teeny tiny little glass floor area in the CN Tower in Toronto. NO WAY would you have got me into that little glass death box!!!! (You're brave.)

Maggie's Scholastic News from school had an article about that just last week! Not sure I could step out there.

I have a huge fear of heights. I don't think I could do it. It looks cool though!

I just saw another blogger post her pictures of that exact same place and with her two boys too! Crazy :)

That looks very cool, I would stand there but there is not a chance in hell my hubby would do it!

My EXTREMELY SCARED OF HEIGHTS HUSBAND did that very thing today. I couldn't, absolutely couldn't. I'm reasonably ok with heights, but nothing under my feet and I'm one breath from hysteria. Bridges...deep breathing. Stairs I can see through...focus on the top. this. Would.Kill.Me.
