Our latest adventure was a week long trip to Chicago! Although we actually went for a law school competition, we still managed to have some fun while we were there! Matt's Moot Court team made it to the National Quarter-finals and their brief (40 page paper) placed 2nd in the Nation! So, the trip was a success in that sense. Before the competition, we had 2 days to hang out in Chicago and see the sights. Below are some of the highlights of our trip...
The 2nd day of our trip was spent at several different museums. We toured the town with Christy (Matt's teammate) and her mom. Although it rained and (again) was VERY cold, we still enjoyed our tours. Thanks to the Chicago CityPass, we were able to skip the LONG lines to get into the museums!
Adler Planetarium...here we saw information about the various space walks, as well as a show about the constellations. We even learned how to find the north star (but don't ask me, because I probably couldn't do it again!)
(Right) We went to the Aqaurium...this is one of the fish we saw. It looks like Dori from Finding Nemo! (Below) The Lions of Tsavo...these lions killed over a hundred people in Africa before hunters were able to kill them!

Well, we have many more pictures, but we'll have to save them for later!! Love you all!
