We started the day walking to the Red Line subway and rode that to the Field Museum.
This was an actual man-eating lion…
After the Field Museum, we caught the train back to downtown. For some reason, the weather is pretty chilly here so because we were headed to do a boat ride next, we had to stop off and buy ourselves some long sleeve shirts. Who would have thought it would be hard to find long sleeve anything in July in Chicago. We had to go to Target, TJ Maxx and Burlington Coat Factory to find one for all of us (except Vicky who was smart enough to bring a light jacket). Course, I was the one who told her not to worry about packing anything warm. It is usually HOT here in July!
After shopping, we headed down to the Navy Pier to take a ride on a sailboat called the Tall Ship Windy.
Stephen and I (and others) helped to raise the sails…
After the boat ride, we bought a couple of Churros. Holy cow, they were good. Mine was vanilla filled and Stephen got a chocolate filled. They were awesome.
After dinner, we took a quick ride on the El around the loop in downtown.
After that, back to to hotel to get some rest and to do some laundry. Tomorrow will be a long day so we need plenty of rest.
