I thought I would share some pictures from our Chicago trip. We got to go to the Field Museum and Aquarium. Above are some pictures from the Museum, Navy Pier, and of course the Chicago skyline. We also got to see the Indian mounds that are in Illinois, just on the other side of St. Louis, Missouri. It was a fun spontaneous road trip. My husband had decided that morning to quit his job, and instead of going into work that day, we went up to St. Louis where his brother lives. We spent 2 days there , and then decided to make a big trip out of it. We spent two days in Chicago, and then headed home, via Indiana. My husband use to live in Indiana at one point, so we drove through where he use to live, even stayed the night there. We traveled through a total of 5 states in 6 days. Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. If you count the state we lived in at the time ( Arkansas), then it would be 6 states. It was a great trip and I'm glad we were able to do it!
Above are pictures from the Indian mounds and the Aquarium. In one picture you can see the tail of a dolphin, the other picture is of a baluga whale and its baby.
