Chicago Trip... China Town and Shedd Aquarium

When we left the Field Museum we went to China town where we found the biggest Pikachu Piggy Bank ever!!! It now resides in our home! LOL. Anyway here are some pics.... we also had to cross over the set of CHEATERS, apperantly a new movie in the works with Vince Vaughn and someone else, I can't remember. Took a picture of the guy, have no idea who he is... typical me. Any Ideas?









This pic is us leaving China Town. After our dinner that actually had fried chicken feet (no I wasn't that brave!, Not yet enough of Andrew Zimmerman) We had fun as always!
The next day we went to the Shedd Aquarium. It was a "discount day" as opposed to a free day like at the Field. So we wound up paying but it was worth it. I had never been there before so it was an awesome experience to see some of the exhibits, especially watching Xander watch the sea otters, and watching my mother discover the snake is a giant anaconda! that was priceless! And of course how often do you see an act with Beluga Whales??>??? But Dimon's favorite part... chasing seagulls! Xander and Izzy both loved the porpoise show and beluga whale show. I loved the Amazon Rising exhibit! So the kind of exhibit I would love to be in charge of cause lets face it, I'm a nerd!!! Here are some more pics!
After our day at the Shedd we went to Navy Pier. 2 words... LET DOWN!!!! The only good part was the water taxi ride over to it! Look at the picture of the fog coming in over the water!!! It was raining on the way which made it kinda fun. And pretty.






Navy Pier did give us videothis wonderful sign!!! Which I need one of my more artistic friends to make a project!!!!
