On Thursday Blake had a day off and instead of the usual lazy day in bed we decided to get out and explore the city. First stop was The Lincoln Park Conservatory. It is free everyday and this week they have a Spring flower display that is out of this world. When you come in the front door you are hit with an aroma of fruit trees and flowers and 80 degrees which is a welcome change from the 34 degrees outside.
After the conservatory we went to The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum to see the butterfly display. It was a "free day" so we ended up just giving a $3 donation. The museum was a sea of strollers and little white babies with Filipino nannies and the occasional prego like me :)
I have not had that much fun with my honey in Chicago. If you have an iPhone and live in the Chicago area check out the application "Free Events in Chicago". It gives a listing of upcoming free events...very cool!
