On our last day we decided to visit both the Shedd Aquarium and the Fields Museum. They were incredible and I'd love to revisit them, especially as you could spent a whole day in each one alone.
The jelly fish exhibit was fantastic, almost made me like them!
I love seahorses and found myself drawn to them several times while we were there. They are the most beautiful creatures and have an air of magic to them.
Unfortunately I didn't get many photos at the Fields Museum but it is phenomenal. I can't recommend it highly enough. We got to meet Sue, their resident T-Rex, and I just loved all the bones, mammals and totem poles they had on display.
There were so many highlights over the course of our anniversary weekend but the best would have to be the poem that my husband wrote for me. I should mention that when we got married I gave him a silver pocket watch with the words 'hand in hand as we walk in the white sand' engraved on it.
Hand - together warmed by loving touch in the mittens
In- love from a shake through the years with increasing smitten
Hand - with a ring, look at me, with blue eyes filled in emotion
As - I look deep within, first time, an inkling more than a notion
We - one from that moment, relentlessly, lovingly build the flame
Walk - the winding path through valleys of joy, hills of pain
On - towards future unknown but built together and united
The - love shared anticipation, like a child again, excited
White - has started but will be complete with bond even stronger
Sand - of time, my love, for you today, everyday, will last longer
by my wonderful husband, Bryan Dechairo
