First stop? Chicago!
Dave expertly plotted our travels via train, so we traversed the sprawling city without having to bother with trying to find parking. Woohoo! Also, being transported by train is fun! (Can you see the excitement on our faces?!)
It was Dave's first visit to the Shedd Aquarium ... and I hadn't been there in 8 years. The giant water- and creature-filled exhibits did not disappoint! Here are a couple of snapshots from our time there:
Dave, "having a whale of a time."
The "Windy City" sure lived up to its reputation while we were there, too! :D Notice our jackets, which were sorely needed in the cool, strong breeze. And, of course, our wild wind-tossed hair!
I love vacationing with my best friend.
Next, it was off to The Field Museum. We couldn't help but gawk at the GIANT dinosaur right inside the front entrance! This is Dave looking "afraid" of the T-Rex:
But that only covers the first few days of our vacation. Stay tuned for part 2!
