Destination: Chicago

The Music Man has been taking his 8th grade choirs to Chicago for 5 or 6 years now, and this year we got brave enough to go with him.  One hundred singers, 40 parents, 6 staff, 3 charter buses, and us 3 family members make for an eventful weekend trip.

We boarded the Spirit of Chicago for a lunch cruise.

And danced!

We visited Millennium Park,

including the Lurie Gardens.

We walked across the street to the Art Institute.

We met up with some long, lost friends at the Shedd Aquarium

and saw some beluga whales,

some grumpy fish, 

and some amazing jellyfish.

After that, it was to the top of the John Hancock building

 for a fun performance.

The next day was for visiting Navy Pier, including the ferris wheel

and the indoor gardens.

Chicago, we hope to see you again!
