This is what happens when you fall behind with the blog. just a mess of disconnected pictures. So here you go!
Here is Gridley in a bird's nest. She's tiny!
Here we are outside of the Shedd aquarium. nice view of the city. there is a little hidden nature trail around the back side of it.
This is our brick at the Willowbrook bird sanctuary.
Here we are at the arboretum. They have a "Ribbit Exhibit". Clever name. just a bunch of copper statues of frogs in different poses.
Here we are at a performance of children's theater in Chicago. it is a musical version of a book in the series Magic Treehouse. pretty cool. the kids enjoyed it. Not quite as great as the Frog and Toad musical. Still worth checking out.
For Earth Day we participated in the Salt Creek clean up. we've done this almost every year we've lived here. good time. always nice people. We got a lot of Thank You's by people using the bike path through the forest preserve we were in.
