The day started at the Shedd Aquarium. This was the view from a balcony outside of the aquarium.

The ceiling was so neat! And a welcome break from the sun after waiting in line outside for an hour.

This starfish was just the coolest!

Sea anemone…I think everyone spent the majority of the time trying to pronounce anemone.

We took the water taxi from the aquarium to Navy Pier. This was the aquarium.

The skyline from the water was so cool!

Navy Pier was pretty busy. We were not planning on even looking around but it started pouring so we ran inside. It did not stop so we put on rain ponchos and made a run for it to Water Tower Place. My shoes were soaked.

Wonuts was a neat concept but they might have tasted better fresh. They were the size of doughnuts and had doughnut toppings but we made in a waffle iron and it was waffle batter. This specific one was at the mall and they did not seem too fresh.

The John Hancock building was free to go up unlike the Willis Tower. It also only took us about 20 minutes in line too.

We were told that the best view was from the ladies restroom; they were right!! It was such an amazing view.

For dinner we went to the Eataly on Ohio Street. This place was definitely unique.

It was two stories tall. There were four different restaurants within the Eataly and there were grocery shopping areas.

A lot of the food was fresh, which was really neat.
