Field Trip.

One of the activities my mother-in-law wanted to do on this visit was check out the Field Museum of Natural History, one of the three museums on Museum Campus, just south of the Loop in Chicago (the other two being the Adler Planetarium and the Shedd Aquarium). The Field is a very cool place to explore if you like mummys, dinosaurs, and the history of humans in all parts of the world. (My very favorite place at the Field, though, is hidden away on one end of the top floor: it’s the Grainger Hall of Gems.) I’ve been to the Field Museum on a fairly regular basis over the past few years, so I decided that it would be a good day to just stroll along with the family as I played with my new camera a little bit. Whaddaya think?
