Kids, I got to get out of town this past weekend.  The main thing I did on Friday was spend a lot of time at the famous Shedd Aquarium. 

They've got some magnificent animals there, and part of my admission was a ticket to go see the demonstration of some of what they can do.


There were dolphins, Beluga whales, a huge hawk, and a sea otter.  It was a great amount of fun.


It was educational, too!  So I really felt like I was getting something done with all of my enjoyment. I also went to a couple more places around town that day and did some wandering.  I came back Sunday afternoon, and all in all it was a fantastic trip.

Vacationly yours,
