Visit to Shedd Aquarium

Earlier this week Chris and I went to visit the Shedd Aquarium. I believe I have been there but it had to have been a century ago as I don't remember it. So it was like a first trip for both of us!

Not sure if anybody knows but it is free admission on certain "community days" each month, you should check out their website to see what days are free of charge each month if you are thinking about visiting. Although it does not include the shark exhibit - fyi. And the worst part about our visit was that the dolphin, whale and penquin exhibit is closed for renovation until June 2009?! So I guess we may be visiting Shedd again someday because I would imagine that is the best part of your visit.But either way was fun! There is still PLENTY to look at and see. The best part was that we went on a Monday so it was crowded but not that crowded. Still a fair amount of kids running around and getting in your way to look in the glass exhibits but if we had gone on a Saturday or Sunday - forget it! I don't think I would I can only imagine the amount of people there! Some people came with their small babies and were showing them the exhibits....I wanted to be like hello? They have NO clue what they're looking at!?

But a great way to spend an afternoon at a great price! The Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and Museum of Science & Industry are steps away as well so there's plenty of history to visit in this area on a boring cold Sunday afternoon.Got a few pics of the animals there like the frog above that pretty much matches the color of the leaves EXACTLY! And this fish above...I was snapping away with the flash on and later saw signs everywhere that says no flash - oopsy!

Love the pic with the skyline background! Looks like you two had a great afternoon. Too bad you missed the penguins though. They are my fav!
