Cooling down but still HOT

Saturday was another day up in the 90s so we decided to do something indoors again.
We went to the Field Natural History Museum and again the place was so big and so interesting we were there until 5.00.
It did get scary towards the end of the day in there as we started to walk through hall after hall of stuffed animals from all over the world and we couldnt find an exit.
It started to get really freaky when you passed people you had passed 10 minutes earlier and they couldnt find a way out either.
In the end there must have been about 12 of us all staying in a group and laughing nervously trying to find a way out but not doing too well.
Eventually just passed molluscs of Australasia and Dung Beetles of North Africa we found the all importantant Exit sign and everyone gave a big cheer.
Came back to the hotel where we heard the sad news of Amy Winehouse.
I think everyone knew her life would end tragically and too early but i hope her spirit is at peace now and her songs will always be played.
We didnt do much just went for dinner and then had a night watching American TV or should i say adverts and then fell asleep.
Today has been a lot cooler so we have been out hitting the shops and going to different neighbourhoods to have a nosey around. I have bought some craft books and art materials that i cant get at home and Gordon has bought some shoes and jeans.
THis evening we went down to the Navy Pier and had dinner at Bubba Gumps and then went and watched the last ever Harry Potter Movie in 3D on an Imax screen ( Fabulous )
Yes i shed a tear at the end and thought the whole film was brilliant.
Got back to the hotel at around 12.00 am and have got everything packed and ready so we can have a last look around Chicago in the morning and then we will make our way to the airport around mid day.
Have had a great time but cant wait to get home to our little Harry and find out whats been happening at home.
Cant put any photos up as i have packed the cameras away but will post some when we get back.
Thanks for dropping by
Love and Smiles Rob and Gordon xxx
