As you have heard if you read Kayla's posts, we went to the zoo. Here are some pictures she didn't share that I like.
Next comes pictures from the mall next to the Chicago Water Tower (the history of that tower is pretty cool and you should look it up if you don't know it.) Most of the pictures are from the Lego store. Anybody who knows me is well aware of how I feel about shopping, and will understand why there won't be an epic tale of shopping to follow. I was pretty blown away by the mall itself though. It was my first time inside of such a tall mall (8 floors.)
It's soooooo tall inside and this picture doesn't do it justice since you don't get the 360 degree view.
The dragon below is completely constructed out of lego's. Little bits of him wrap around throughout the store. Sucks for the person that had to build it. I wonder if it ever gets broken by rowdy children.
Well, that's all I've really got at the moment. No fantastic stories (Kayla covered the zoo visit pretty well) or deep revelations. Just some pictures of good times we've been having. This weekend we're planning on going to the beach. We had planned on going last weekend but between the rain and the need to get last minute school supplies for Kayla (meaning shoes), we didn't get a chance. Hopefully the weather will look favorably on us and we can go this time. If so, we'll be chilling at Montrose beach just a bit over a mile from our apartment. How I love the city and all of its convenience.
