A Visit With The Fishies

Last weekend, we took Alex on his first trip to Shedd Aquarium. We didn't think he'd get much out of it, but that kid talked and talked and talked to the fishies. We have no clue what he told them, but we're sure that Alex loved the fish!

I should have made the picture below bigger. The look of awe on Alex's face is so fun!
Hopefully you can click & enlarge it.
Can you see that cute little smile on the picture below? I think he wanted to grab the fishies.

The video is dark, but if you can see it, watch the look on Alex's face :)

On another note, it costs an arm & a leg to visit the aquarium! By the time you pay parking, admission, and buy a hotdog and a drink...you're BROKE! Next time, we're bringing our own lunch...which we normally do, but for some reason chose not to on this day. This day just about blew our entertainment budget for the entire month of November! Wow!

Oh, and Keith was a pretty happy guy - we parked in the garage under Soldier Field. We went to the Bears gift shop. We walked by the stadium turnstiles. Only problem - No game that day. ;)

I've always wanted to go up there. I'll know to start saving ahead of time for it! But it looked like it was definitely worth it from Alex's perspective. He looked like he loved it!

Looks like a super fun day!
