I thought I'd share some pics of my weekend trip to Chicago, I went to the famous Fields museum which houses Sue the T-Rex and had an Egyptian exhibit going on, here are some pics from that -

I saw this bronze statue of a lion and lioness and it reminded of my Friend the 'lioness' Ketana -



This pic of a Mummy's coffin actually kind of spooked me out when I looked at it, the two lights emanating from it, what could it be?  *cues eerie music*  Actually now that I look at it, I think it's my camera's wrist strap that got in the way of the flash...ahem..



Sue the famous T-Rex, her actual head and jaw are too big/heavy to display on the body, so the head is a replica on the body -



Some egyptian pottery and statues, mummies and more coffins -















I was staying across the street from where Oprah Winfrey has her studio, so I took a picture of the sign -



The first thing I went on when I arrived at Navy Pier was a boat cruise, here are some pictures taken from the boat =



Downtown Chicago, it was hazy during the early afternoon, the sun didn't come out until later, so it's a bit foggy -



The pier itself is about a half mile long and throughout the day I meandered down the length of it and this is what it looks like at the very end -



A light house in the distance on Lake Michigan -



A view pulling up to the dock -



Some of the other boats on the lake -





And it wouldn't be Navy Pier without some real Naval men in uniform, I talked to these 3 cuties and took a picture of them, and a picture of me with them as well -



As soon as I saw this 15 story Ferris wheel, I knew I had to go on it -



A view of Chicago from atop the ferris wheel -



A pic of the pier itself -



There was also a Shanghai Cirque playing as well and I went to the afternoon show, they did some amazing acrobatics, some of my pictures didn't turn out so well, I either jostled the camera, or they were moving too much, but here's a few pics of that show -









I had a great time and wish I could have stayed longer!  Maybe I'll get out there again someday!

I had so much fun, wish I could have spent more time there, maybe I'll have a chance to go back in the future. I wouldn't want to live there though, I don't like city life, too much of a concrete jungle.

So where's the scary hair pic?

Clearly you had a great time, and I'm so glad you had so much fun.
