Art Institute

Standard

Saturday we had planned on going to the Botanical Gardens, but it was rainy, so we went to the Art Institute of Chicago instead.    It was fun to see all the art.  Some I knew of, and lots I had never seen before.  This piece is from the Roy Lichtenstein collection.  There were tons others of his I wanted to snap a photo of, but they were off limits because it was part of a private collection.  I did take one, but security makes you delete it right away.  Apparently I have good taste, because all the ones I really liked were “NO PHOTOS”.

C1 got most excited to see the lion statues that are out front of the building.  The bus dropped us off right at the front steps, it was nice.

Afterword we went to the mall (near the Water tower) to have some lunch.  I didn’t realize there was a Lego store here, and enjoyed the lego version of down town Chicago.  All the buildings and water is all made from Lego’s.

After lunch we had to go to Ghiradrdelli for a sundae.  The peanut butter fudge one to be exact.  I would show you what it looks like, but I love it so much, I don’t think to take a picture until I’m done.

On our way home we tried to catch the train.  It was SO full.  Packed to the gills.  Thankfully there was a train not far behind, that was practically empty.

So we took that train.  C1 loved climbing all over the seats and sitting by himself.  It’s so much fun to get out and be with Daddy.  We’ve come to learn to enjoy living in a city and all the fun things there are to do.  With a house so small, we have to get out and do things; it’s fun.
