Chicago Day 2- Shedds Aquarium

First Taxi Ride, they loved it! And were happy that Sage & Mavery were not the only ones who have had a taxi ride in the family!

Notice Makennas camera taking a swim in the water while she pets the starfish? Thankfully the case kept it dry.

We saw Spongebob in 4D.

Sawyer wanted to see the sharks, not pose with his sisters obviously in the submarine.

We had to improvise at dinner and use the coffee maker as a cup. ;-)

We started with 2 of these pizzas. I have no idea why Mark thought we needed 2, but he claimed he was starving.

This is what we ended with. That is some heavy pizza but oh so yummy!

While we were at American Girl, the boys went shopping at the Lego Store where Sawyer does NOT have his dad in him and was more than willing to spend his entire life savings! We went to Rainforest Cafe for lunch which is always one of our favorites. The kids were thrilled that they got their first taxi ride over to Shedds Aquarium after that. We were thrilled that the taxi ride was so calm compared to China. ;-) The aquarium was VERY crowded. I think everyone is trying to squeeze in the last of summer as I have heard everyone complaining about crowds everywhere. Not to mention Lalapaloozza was going on. (some big concert thing. ) We ended the evening with dinner at Giordanos for pizza. We wanted to eat in, but when they told us it was a 2 1/2 hour wait, we opted for carry out. Makenna liked the pizza, Sawyer and Malaine did not. Crazy kids!
