Shedd Aquarium in Chicago
After the Lincoln Park Zoo, we all traveled to the Shedd Aquarium. Olivia loves fish so we thought the aquarium would be enjoyable. Oh, were we wrong. Not only did we mis-judge the crowds on a holiday weekend, the show stadium for the dolphins had just reopened after a year of construction so there was not any real show. The dolphins had only been in the new show pool for one day prior to our visit. Olivia didn't mind though, they still jumped in the air which she throughouly enjoyed, although it was more of a demomstration about training techniques then an actual show. There were many strollers and stairs which are not a great combo. I got bowled over by kids trying to squeeze into the smallest spots to see the fish and Olivia is so small she didn't get a good view either. Need less to say these few pictures are the best we have, due to low lighting, large crowds and my anxiety attack. Enjoy!
