When we were in Istanbul, we treated our one year stay as a long vacation and kept exploring the city as much as we could, instead of settling into a routine. In Chicago, while we are trying to settle into a routine and also get a lot done, we are still trying to be tourists. We have been to another great museum this weekend, the Field Museum. In a very beautiful, big building, the museum did a fine job of making every detail work very well. Beautiful exhibits, kiddie corners all around instead of just one room designated for the kids and also a giant children's area named PlayLabs.
Images above are: the entrance with the giant elephants, Aztec marketplace clay-model with super intricate details and a little house from Pueblo for kids to play in the PlayLab area. Good places like this seem to prevent meltdowns in our family. We all had a great time. And the longest fast food lunch at McDonalds (not my choice)! Adele and Lula really enjoy their rare french fries and ketchup outings slowly.
House number #23 is seen. Might be promising.
