After Bible Bowl, our family visited Chicago. We tried to pack in as many museums as we could over Sunday and Monday.

This a view of Chicago from in front of Adler Planetarium. The large round building at the left of the picture is the aquarium.

The kids had a lot of fun exploring the many exhibits at the planetarium.

After spending several hours at Adler, we walked the short distance to Shedd Aquarium. We were only able to see maybe half of the exhibits. Shedd is huge. We were able to watch the dolphin show, and talk at length to the beluga whale and sea otter keepers. This help us fulfill one of the requirements for the Marine Mammals honor we were working on.

Sunday evening we visited Sears Tower

Monday we spent the day at the Museum of Science and Industry.

This was a very cool wall. The images on it reacted to the movement of your shadow.

We spent quite a bit of time watching the young chicks and the chicks that were hatching before our eyes. This was a very special exhibit.

The chick exhibit is quite cruel. The chicks hatch in a bright,scary environment. Then are subjected to cruelty by too many visitors laughing, yelling and tapping on their glass cage. They cannot rest peacefully, nor get any comfort from their mother who is not allowed in the cage. The animals have a high mortality rate. They may live long enough to grow into adulthood, but it is unlikely. As adults they are carted off to the gas chamber that annihilates all of the birds deemed unfit for either breeding or human consumption. Go veg and save a life, don't support animal cruelty.
God Bless You
