Another day at the cabin

After a great first day at the cabins, I was up bright and early for another day at Sam Baker. I started my day with a run! (more on that later)

We started the day with eggs, bacon, and cherries- YUM

Question for you:

Are you a morning or an evening person?

-I definitely feel more alert at night, but my body seems to think 6:30 is always a good time to get up haha

Shedd’s aquarium

After arriving in style in Chicago on Friday, it was time to hit the ground running!

We headed straight to Shedd’s aquarium. Luckily, I packed breakfast and snacks (yogurt, granola, hummus, carrots, cucumbers, and pecans) on the train and wasn’t hungry.

The aquarium was absolutely amazing! Just take a look at the pictures!!!

  sea turtle!

 

 sea horse

 JELLIES!!!! (said in Finding Nemo voice!)

 

 

  after 6 hours in a train and two hours at the aquarium, dont judge! haha (minus my mom)

  the blue thing on the left is a really pretty fish

  

 GROSSSSSSS

 After the aquarium (and problems in the park garage- they weren’t going to let me out!) we headed back to my cousin’s condo, changed into comfy clothes, and ate a million gardetto’s got some pizzas!

….more to come tomorrow!

Question for you:

Would you rather go to an aquarium, museum, or planetarium?

– Aquarium for me!
