So on the second day in Chicago, it was freezing cold (high of 38 F / 4 C - in May!!!!) so we decided to do something indoors. We went to the Children's Museum which conveniently, was a short (and cold and windy) walk away from the hotel. As it turned out, it was one of the best things ever! Yaya had a fabulous time and still talks about it.

At the museum, Vin and I pretty much had to separate. One of us stayed with Yaya and the other with Adik, and at some points we switched up. So there aren't very many pictures of the kids together. However there are plenty of pictures:

On a CTA Bus
At a treehouse
Fishing for toy fishies
Adik and Vin at the cushioned baby play area
Telescoping for Mama
Look at all the miniature stuff!
Cool shadowy butterfly visual trick
Reflective Flower Yaya
Crazy Funnel Head!
Are you messing with me?
Bottled treasure
Adik's getting tired
Yaya learns about plumbing
Filling up her first car
Dinosaur skeleton

We were starving and so stopped for lunch at Harry Carey's right at Navy Pier. Then we went back to the museum for more fun!

Adik napped in the stroller

When he woke up he was ready to go again!

Fire truck stairs are a little steep for this little fireman
Firefighter Yaya drives the truck (and leans heavily on the siren!)

There was a building section - even better than just building blocks!

Get that screw tightened
Safety goggles and hard hat!
Yaya built a cube!

It is almost time to go. Yaya goes up the crow's nest of the 3 story pirate ship and keeps walking down the net:

Brave girl!
Happy Adik waits for Yaya
I don't want to leave, Mama

But sadly, the museum closed and we were kicked out. We stopped to get some Chicago Cubs paraphernalia and then walked home in the cold. Both kids conked out early that night. Wheee!
