Today was our first whole day in Chicago. Fox woke up before sunrise, and I wasn't sorry at all to get up with him and draw the curtains to this:
We worked at a steady clip to get dressed, fed, and moving in the direction of the Field Museum. We walked through Millennium Park to get there and had the Anish Kapoor sculpture "Cloud Garden" to ourselves for a few minutes.
The Field Museum was more vast, more interesting, more magical, and better-done than I even thought a museum could be. We spent from about 10 in the morning to 4:30 in the afternoon, catching the bus back to our hotel (which was an adventure in and of itself, one that kept me mentally so busy that I did not think to snap a picture of it). We were all exhausted, but really, really glad we squeezed as much as we could out of the day.
