Spontaneous Saturday

We took advantage of a dreary day to head to the Shedd Aquarium for Tegegn and Tiruye's first visit. Atticus and Norah love the yellow submarine there and Tegegn was a quick convert. He loves any type of steering wheel on play equipment and will camp out pretending to drive for huge amounts of time. Tiruye squealed with delight each time she spotted a penguin or beluga whale and loved watching them through the aquarium windows. There was a big football crowd in the museum parking area, so we ended up getting to walk through the Chicago Jazz Festival and along the lake on our way back and forth to the aquarium. Norah would have been happy to sit watching the music all day.  Next year we may need to plan to bring a picnic and stay.
