Harry Potter at Science and Industry
We saw Ron's "R" Weasley sweater. Sure, not technically book accurate, but sweet to see in person. His bed spread by the way, is not quilted, it's all hand knit. Our Orange and Green Barbara J. Hopps Charity Blanket from last summer is totally Molly Weasley approved!
A bunch of outfits, and props, and, and stuff from the movies were in the exhibit. It was overwhelming, and awesome.
Plus, Twilight fans-I saw Robert Pattinson's outfits from Goblet of Fire. He's short.
Everywhere we went we said "is this a museum or a dance party?!" Why, because it was fun and we were constantly dancing.
Dinos at Brookfield Zoo
Oooh, Pirates at the Field Museum.
Here's the list of things I didn't get photos of because the evil camera crapped out:
Bacon in my "vegetarian salad" at the Field Museum
Margarita Flight (6!) at Fuego Loco, plus the sampler I begged off the waiter due to over salsa consumption.
Copernicus statue in front on the Adler Planetarium. We named our new dog after him, we needed a photo.
Gangsta Wedding Party. Full tails on the tuxes, hats, everything trimmed in pink, face piercings, tats, flower girls, and the bride wore white. It was beautiful and punk rock all at the same time. All this, no evil camera!
Groendyke tanker truck-Really? The jokes were flying like mad in the Mazda. Sadly, no photographic evidence.
But, alas, we had to return home. You'll be glad to know during our down time I did manage to conquer entralac knitting. You might say I conquered it as well as I do any knitting technique. Plus, there will be photos of that in the near future, because like all things that die, the evil camera is back!! I know have an evil zombie camera!
