The Big Tank!
If you've never been to Chicago's Shed Aquarium your missing out. Todd and I took the kids this past Sunday and we enjoyed it so much that 2 days later I came back with my friend Michelle and her kids for another fun day. I did learn that going during the week is much more pleasant because it is less crowded.
Here are some pictures of the fun...
When we came back with my friend we opted to drive up the night before and stay in my in-laws condo in downtown Chicago. The kids had lots of fun sitting in the window from the 28th floor and watching all the cars below.
Tony thought this was the coolest cookie jar ever, and there weren't even cookies in it!
Tony and Bella in the ice cave, right before leaving, can you tell they are wearing out? It was a long day with no nap for them, but surprisingly they did quite well.
All in all it was a very fun couple of days, and I think we will be going back a lot more. On the way home Tony kept saying, "go back!"
