On Saturday, Kevin and I decided to venture back into downtown Chicago and take a peek at the Chicago Field Museum. So, we packed up our things and hopped on the train to save gas and parking money, and then walked down Lake Shore Drive until we arrived at our destination. It was pretty expensive to get in so it was a good thing we took the train and even better that Brooklyn is still FREE!
We got to see two of the traveling exhibits: Natural Disasters, and Mythic Creatures. Both were very neat (especially the natural disaster one) but they wouldn't let us take pictures. After that, we fed Brooklyn and then started to look at the regular exhibits. It was so fun! Especially when we stumbled upon a "Warriors of the Pacific" exhibit and found a whole room dedicated to Maori Warriors!!! (That's where me and Brooklyn are in the picture above.)
After awhile we made it downstairs to the Mummy Exhibit! (We had a hard time finding the elevator.) They had all sorts of things like pottery and papyrus scrolls, but the mummies were still the coolest. One sad thing was the mummy of a little infant. It was no bigger than my forearm! That's what Kevin is pointing to in the picture above. Being a mother now, I could imagine how horrible it must have been for the mother of that baby to have to see her child like that. :(
