A look back at 2010: Dinosaur greetings at Chicago's Millennium Park

I've been trying to work on our 2010 photo book this week (God bless you, Snapfish, for making that a project that now takes a few nights instead of several months!) It was a great year, full of many adventures for my family, much of which I've shared with you. However, I realized that there were a few photos from some really fun outings and trips we took this year that I never shared on this blog. How dare I keep them from you, right?

So for the next few Photo Fridays, I'll be sharing some of those 2010 highlights. Let's kick things off with a fun picture from our trip to Millennium Park in Chicago. I wrote about our morning there here. You can imagine the arrow's delight when, after he was finally successful in dragging me away from the Cloud Gate sculpture, we rounded the corner and found this fun, gigantic dinosaur staring down at us. And there was more colorful, whimsical artwork to come.

Don't you just love those big trees? You would never know we were steps away from bustling Michigan Avenue. We hope to make it back to Chicago this spring or summer. Another stop at Millennium Park will definitely be on our agenda.

  1. Chicago is on the top of my list recently. It has so many places we want to visit - Legoland Discovery Center, Millenium Park and of course the Navy Pier. :) So glad to see you share the little escape in the bustling city.

    Where are all the tourists? :)

  2. Very cool! Do you know what the dinosaur made out of?
