The weather in Chicago had gotten a lot worse when we got up on Sunday. Tornado’s and strong winds were rolling it, although it didn’t feel that cold as we walked up to Shedd Aquarium which is the largest indoor aquarium in the world! I was completely in my element seeing amazing fishes including Nemo and Jellyfish! I was also lucky enough to pet a Lake Sturgeon who was very slimy! We also saw dolphins, octopus’, sharks and Penguins!!
Of course there was a visit to the gift shop and I fell in love with a lot of cuddly toys – you will be proud to know though that I did not buy any!
Sophie and I then headed up to the Navy Pier and had lunch and Strawberry lemonade to escape the rain, hailstones and wind! We wrapped up well after this because it was so cold!
As we were out we found out our flight was delayed back to DC which was annoying, unfortunately the others on our trip had their flight cancelled (I had managed to stupidly book us onto a different flight to them). So the airport was a little insane once we got there, and I saw a lot of the airport as our Gate changed 3 times! However at midnight we were on the flight home and I was back in my bed by 3:30am. I still hate flying but the trip to Chicago was totally worth it, and I had a great weekend with amazing people!
