Tower of the Americas



Yes, another check off the BUCKET LIST!




I'm not sure why I wanted to go to the Tower of the Americas but it just was something to do. Well, we did it.  The kids had a blast...sort of.




The tower is huge.

We actually tried to go last year but since the tower is so close to the convention center there is limited parking - oh and the lot is small that also might have something to do with it.  We could not get parking last weekend so the trip was delayed until this past weekend.  The parking was *gasp* $11.00!!  We got a great deal on Groupon for the Tower of the Americas tickets and show.  We did not eat at the ridiculously priced restaurant because let's face it...that would uh, not be enjoyable with four kids six and below.




The outside of the tower is beautiful. There are lots of really amazing fountains and spots to get photos.  Need a Christmas card place next year...definitely a good option!!




Inside, you take this elevator up, up, up, up to the sky.  My ears popped. You are THAT high.  We got to step out and walk around - its a circle (duh). The kids thought that was amazing. They have an inside part and an outside part.  There are maps inside showing you where each thing is...not so interesting when you are six and below...




But you know what is?




The "racecars" as Achoo called them...




Finding our car....




The pool on the roof...




Oh...and just spending time with family!
