Shedd Aquarium

I bought a membership to the aquarium this week, and this morning Lauren, Ryan and I took a trip to visit. The aquarium is literally straight up the road from here – if you take the main street that runs east-west as far as you can east until you hit Lake Michigan, you are at the aquarium. The #12 bus leaves from the corner and goes directly there, it takes about 15 minutes, and costs $2 for each adult. Lauren rides free (and gets in the aquarium free too!) and it was SO easy.

The first thing you see when you arrive is a giant round tank with a sea turtle, tons of BIG fish, stingrays, and a green eel swimming around. It was feeding time when we got there, so we stood and watched the fish chow and a diver swim. Lauren was THRILLED. I think she could stand and watch the fish for days if we let her. We also toured one of the smaller wings, the Komodo Dragon (and other lizards) special display that is only there for a few more weeks, and watched the dolphin show. After the dolphins Lauren wanted to see the penguins, but once we got to their area, she was asking to go back on the bus. She was pretty darn tired, so we left, rode home, and had lunch and a nap.
