Free fun at the Shedd

Today Zachary and I braved the Chicago traffic and headed downtown. Krista, Dane's sister (who lives downtown), joined us as we took advantage of a discount day at the Shedd Aquarium where general admission was free! To avoid the $15 museum parking fee we were so proud of ourselves for paying only $1 at some meter parking right in front of the museum!

Zachary LOVED the aquarium!!

It was so cute to hear the parade of kids who were so excited to see Nemo!

Here are a few highlights from the day:

Fun fun! Eric and I went to the aquarium once--I loved the little penguins! Now you just have to hit the free days of all the other museums!
