In a world with a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 16 month old, a 3 month old and two soldiers you never know what misadventures await. Life is always springing the unexpected and I want to share them with you. Welcome to my world.

Chicago Trip in Photos: Day 5

It was sad to reach our last day on our Adventure in the city, but at the same time I was ready to go home. I'd been kind of nauseous the whole time we'd been there and I hadn't felt so great on the flight in. (Of course now we know I was pregnant) At the time I had my suspicions, but anyway. Here was what we crammed into our last day in Chicago.
Our Hotel room (Pardon the mess)

We went to the Aquarium

The kids in a cute little boat in the middle of the Aquarium

One huge lobster

Another super cute dolphin

Aidan loved the penguin

An Orca

Rosehill Cemetery
I took this cool shot myself without realizing it

This amazing and very sad gravestone. The husband had it made after his wife died in childbirth and then their daughter died four months later. He had this carved for them and buried them together.   
Its also supposed to be the most haunted spot in the cemetery
A sad stone couch gathering moss
The inside of a crypt and I thought it looked very cool.

There are lots of headstones like this one, I think its pretty cool.

This was the last place we stopped before we headed to the airport. It was so sweet of my husband to do this for me. I could have spent days there, it was 350acres. I will go back sometime.

Waiting for our flight at the wrong terminal.  They neglected to inform us of that until we'd been waiting 20 mins. Grr.
She had so much energy and she kept trying to bug some pilot waiting across from us.

Chicago Trip in Photos: Day 4

Day 4 was the craziest and busiest day of our whole trip. We kept it pretty full and saw a lot of stuff.
I love this shot. Both girls were asleep and holding hands!

My poor kids all crashed out in the car on the way to the city.

Another photo of my sexy Hubby. (He really doesn't like his picture being taken.)

Yes, finally a picture of me. Proof I was on this trip.

Christopher said that Aidan spent most of the 20 mins playing with the mop

Ha Ha, I managed to sneak in another one

Welcome to the Science & Industry Museum

Aidan was very fascinated by the Body World's giraffe display.

Catching the sand on the screen, very cool

We stopped at the beach, yes Chicago has a beach.

If any of you have seen the movie Adventures in Babysitting, then you know this building is the one where Sarah climbs out on the windows. This has always been my building, since I was a kid and I got a decent shot of it to share.
