We went to the Art Institute of Chicago, and discovered that my friends that run demolition derby cars should be painting the wreckage not scrapping it - they could be artists!!
The Art Institute did have some cool things - like ancient weapons and armor.
There is a tradition/running joke in our family that every vacation we go on we manage somehow to find a cannon and take the Angie's picture in front of it (when she went on a cruise last summer she saw a cannon on one of the islands they stopped at and had her picture taken in front of that one too!)
We found painted "photo bombs" from the 17th century - the artist would paint his benefactor into the corner of the painting - and non too subtle - truly a photo bomb!
I did my own series of pictures of painters.... here are a couple... it amused me, I didn't want to dampen the Angie's fun.
The Natural History Museum was also on the GoCard
What really fascinated me though, was this giant rock in a tiny tree:
We also hit the Shedd Aquarium, I guess I'm spoiled having been to some amazing aquariums in other cities, and while this one can't even come close to Baltimore - it was a fun place - and I learned from a biologist's standpoint - frogs and toads are the same animal...
Yes, there is still more stuff we did off of the GoCard - so another post tomorrow!
