Last week we finally made time to make it over to Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. It was SO fun! We are so lucky to live within 1.5-2 hours from Chicago. The drive isn’t bad at all as long as we can avoid traffic. We picked a good day when the sun was out and the snow was actually melting a little. Although, Chicago is called the windy city for a reason and it was still super cold with the wind. The view from the aquarium is hard to beat. Right on Lake Michigan with the city in the background; makes for perfect pictures! While the boys stayed inside with the kiddos, fellow blogger, Jennifer Meyering, and I zipped outside to snap some great shots. It was so much fun to shoot with a friend and someone who is a little more experienced in the blogging world than me. She is definitely teaching me the ropes and helping me along. I definitely couldn’t do this without her! Back to the aquarium, we got to see so much and Lincoln loved it. They have a really fun dolphin show and even have Beluga Whales (cue the Baby Beluga song). After the aquarium we ventured into the city and did dinner at Ditka’s. I was a little hesitant on taking a toddler there for dinner, but they had a great kids menu and were very kid friendly. We had a nice dinner and were able to enjoy each others company and ended a very long day with a drive home. We were all super tired by time we got home, but it was all worth it. Those adventurous family days are few and far between, but are priceless. I’m make it a goal of mine to do more of them in the future.
