Later that day we packed up and headed back downtown to check out the Shedd Aquarium... after all, it was a FREE day!
All the displays were amazing and I personally really enjoyed myself.
The girls liked it a lot as well, although, I think their favorite part was a decorative canoe in one of the display areas that they could climb in and out of :)
The next day we took it pretty easy, but that night we set up a fort in the living room to watch Wreck it Ralph! We had lots of treats and popcorn and had a blast watching the girls' reactions to the movie.
Best part of the night? When the girls decided to play a game they made up called "Shake your Cave!"
Sorry the video is so long (and loud) but I had to share it...for posterity's sake!
The next morning Janna and Colleen took over my preschool (by request) to show me some fun new things I can try, especially during music time. We had soooo much fun that we actually forgot to take any pictures, but I assure you, it was EPIC!
Later that night Kevin's brother Brian also arrived on the scene and it wasn't long before the Hanks kids were out playing games at a nearby arcade! I love that they roll like that :)
After a night at the arcade, we tucked the kids in bed, listened to Brian practice a speech he was doing for a competition, and then went to sleep to prepare for another day of fun!
