The Shedd & Lincoln Park Zoo

Outside the Shedd Aquarium
We now have an annual membership to the Shedd Aquarium! It was one of those situations where the annual membership is only $30 more than the daily rate for a family, and we knew we'd be back to Chicago again within the next year.

They have a glass topped sting ray tank that you can walk on. So cool!
At "Fantasea," a live show with dolphins, whales and penguins.
Getting to pet sea stars.
Playing in the penguin habitat.... why didn't they switch penguin suits?
Sliding down the ice like a penguin.

Playing in the submarine.
I was mesmerized by this tank of jelly fish. It hypnotizes you like a lava lamp.
Exploring the glacier.
There's only 2 pics of the zoo because we didn't last long there. I wasn't feeling well and Trip quickly fell asleep in the stroller. We did get to see some kangaroo which, I think, was a first for the kids and, fortunately, admission to the Lincoln Park Zoo is free so we'll visit it again next time.
