National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium

Katherine and I went to the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium over the weekend. They were doing "ice fest", where they had some snow sculpting, and did a few activities. Overall, it was a pretty good museum, a lot larger than I expected.
This was one of the displays in the museum, but we weren't sure what it was for. But it was fun to stand in and take some photos.

Day 2 at the Museum

Our admission was for the whole weekend, and we came back because it was nicer on the second day. This is a paddle wheel that is on the outside of one of the museum building.

Chicago Weekend Trip

We drove down to Chicago on Friday afternoon and spend the night in a hotel that was just outside of Chicago. That way we could get right to it on Saturday morning. We started off the morning at Millennium Park.
