Chicago 2015 (Part 2)

If you missed Part 1 of these photos, you can click HERE to catch up.

Last time we went to Chicago we went to the Willis (Sears) Tower. We didn't want to do that many repeats this trip, so this time we went to the Hancock Tower.

It's cool to look down over the city and see places that you had recently walked by or visited.

Classic cityscape.

We also just kind of walked around the city that day, and we found a really cool candy store. Everything was way too expensive and we didn't buy anything, but it was cool nonetheless. :p

On one of our last few days we went to the Museum of Science and Industry with Becky, Ethan and Lucas. Ethan loved hanging out with Shaina. :)

It was a rather long trip to get to the museum, 2 trains, and a bus.
Lucas fell asleep before we even got there.

This museum was one of the coolest places we visited. They had an indoor tornado!

And a mirror maze

This place was so trippy and cool.

An endless maze of me.

They had a bunch of incubators with chicks and eggs at various stages.

They were so cute.

Lucas may be rather camera shy, (See last post) but Ethan isn't. :p

On our second to last day we went to the Field museum, which was cool as always.

Shaina has been fascinated with lichens ever since she watched Labyrinth, (which we had just recently watched) so we had to go see their new, temporary lichen exhibit.

The dinosaurs were my favorite part. :p

While we were there I had to find this exhibit. I watch the YouTube channel, The Brain Scoop, which is now based out of the Field Museum, and they recently had a fund drive to create a whole new exhibit for these hyenas. Apparently they have been in the reptile room for decades, and they have been wanting to make a better home for them for a long time. They did eventually reach their goal, and the new exhibit was recently completed. I will have to find that the next time I go.

On our very last day, Sasha was too exhausted to do anything, so Shaina and I went to Navy Pier by ourselves. The Ferris wheel was our favorite part. :)

We also rode the carousal.

We rode the Ferris wheel a few times.

This ride was so much fun.

We also road it more than once. :)

This was our view on our last night there. Chicago is such a cool place. :)

That's all the pictures I have from this trip! In two weeks my cousins and I will be in Minnesota, and I will do my very best to get those up as soon as possible after we get back. :)
