Shedd Aquarium

John G. Shedd Aquarium


Chicago Skyline from Shedd Aquarium



Puffer Fish


Aiyana admiring the fish...




This is about as close as Clara ever got to the fish tanks. She was scared of most of the fish.






Scuba diver feeding the fish...




They had a huge jelly fish display, but we didn't get passes to go in that area because we knew the girls would only last so long.

Sharing some raisenettes...



Some scary looking turtle...

Beautiful sea turtle. Apparently this big boy was involved in some sort of an accident that prevented his back side from following him while he swam around. His hind end would always float upwards. I didn't hear what they had said about it because I had the girls sitting by me while they were talking about the animals.

A giant snake...


Clara was a little freaked out by the snake.










It was so much fun going to the aquarium. The girls probably enjoyed this part of our trip the most, but I think it would be a better experience when they are a bit older. Clara passed out after we got back to my sister's apartment.
