Aquarium

After our morning in Chicago's Chinatown, we headed for Shedd Aquarium.
It was such an interesting place!
There were even penguins, Granny's favorites!
And the girls had a chance to dress up as penguins and waddle through a play area.
By the time we had seen all the aquarium exhibits, it was late afternoon.  We climbed on a bus to head back to the hotel and Miss Rachel promptly fell asleep.  I carried her 37 pounds of dead weight off the bus, up and down 3 flights of stairs, and on to two different trains during rush hour and she never once opened her eyes!  I wish I could sleep that deeply... 

We were all pretty much worn out that evening.  Steve and I opted to just take the girls to a nearby McDonalds for supper.  But even that turned into an adventure!  As we stood in line, I realized that I could hear conversations in Polish, Spanish, and Pakistani, but we were the only family there speaking English.  Not something that happens at home!
