The Windy City

On our way to Art and Laura's wedding we stopped in Chicago to see Joey and check out a few of the sites. Meg hadn't been to the big city for a few years and neither of us had been to the sites in a long time.

We started at the Shedd Aquarium. Checked out a few of the animals and the 4D experience, Planet Earth nonetheless. The 4D experience was like any other 3D movie but then they hit you with wind, rain, vibration. I was soaked by the time we got out of there.

Check out these sweet shades


A ginormous anaconda. I peed myself.

After the Shedd we headed over to Grant Park and wandered around. I had to get a Chicago style hot dog which was eh...

We then found the mirrored "bean". Everyone gravitates there.

Finally we hit Navy Pier. We didn't end up taking a ride on the ferris wheel but I did get a funnel cake. Always necessary.

Overall a great trip. Lots of walking but good times!
