Field Museum Fun!

Last weekend, on a complete whim we decided to take a trip to the Field Museum. Chad and I haven't been in forever, and Jordan had never been. We packed up lunch and hopped in the car. Jordan and I slept on the way down while Chad drove. (This happens a lot...maybe too much.)

Our first stop when we got there was the new children's section called the Crown Family Play Lab. It was a great space in the basement where Jordan made a crown with animals on it and then dug for fossils. Very cool!

Then we headed upstairs to see Sue. I have never seen Sue and she is pretty cool. I do have to say I thought she was going to be much bigger, but she was still cool. Jordan thought she was awesome.
We walked around and saw the animals and went to Egypt. After lunch we go tickets for the Dino 3-D show and went to see the other dinosaurs. Jordan was pretty excited at this point, I'm pretty sure he's roaring in this picture!
It was a fun trip! It was perfect for an overcast, winter day!

I was just there with Sophia's class on a field (no pun intended!) trip Wednesday!

What a great experience! I bet Jordan was amazed by the huge dinosaurs!

What a fun way to spend the day! I'm looking forward to visiting some museums with Henry over spring break...

So great to see your family enjoying themselves on a gray winter day!
