A summer Saturday in Chicago

A few snapshots from our Saturday out in Chicago. First stop, The Bean! Somehow, we'd never been there before. Now, we have.

Pirate Kel underneath The Bean.

View looking up from inside. Much cooler in person, but you get the idea.

And another Chicago first for us -- The Crown Fountain.

Next up, the Field Museum. And nope, we'd never been here either! We were kind of stuck in a Museum of Science and Industry rut for a few years there. Here is Kel with the world famous Sue.

The Blackhawks were in their final games of the hockey playoffs, so there were various silly added decorations around the museum.Notice the statue wearing the Hawks jersey.

In the evening, we went to Navy Pier and took a crazy fun speedboat ride on the lake. It was fast, furious, and we got soaked! These snaps are from before the ride. There was no holding on to cameras (or anything else!) once we got going.

And after the ride. Soaked right through, wild hair, and big smiles.

This is the speedboat that we were on. Off for its next run.

The last four are snaps from my phone.
