On Saturday morning Ella and Mama headed to the Shedd Aquarium. We got there at 10 am, which was great because there were no crowds yet. We walked around and Ella enjoyed looking at all the fish, though she calls them "Foos". We picked out different color fish and got to see the diver go in the tank and feed them. Meena met us at the aquarium a little later in the morning and she was a good girl and walked while holding her hand. We headed down to look at the penquins, which held Ella's attention. She called them "ducks" and liked watching them jump in and out of the water.
We couldn't leave without first visiting the gift shop! Ella got a Dora doll that is a mermaid and a purple t-shirt with dolphins on it.
Ella had a good time for a 22 month old. It is definitely something that she will enjoy more in a few years. We left at 12:30 in the afternoon and it took all of two minutes for her to fall asleep in the car. Evidently all the fish and walking around were tiring!
