We went to visit our friends Heather and Drew*, who live in a totally swank Loft Condo with which I fall in love every time we visit. I think Juliette liked it, too.
|High Ceilings, view of downtown, within walking distance of two grocery stores and a hardware store!|
We took a trip to the Shedd Aquarium.
|She wanted to look at the fish, which were amazing.|
|She's so happy to not be looking at fish. Woo hoo.|
|I want to touch it, but it looks as big as me...|
She eventually got a little tuckered out and had to take a nap. But we wanted to keep going.
|I guess my gentle walking kept her happily asleep for forty-five minutes.|
We saw some amazing things while she was out...
|Drew had to keep telling me that the Dolphins were not playing in the Super Bowl.|
|Jules fell asleep watching minnows and woke up to a Beluga. Her reaction? "Whoa...that thing got big while I was out..."|
After the aquarium, we took a longer nap back at the loft, then went out to dinner. Jules slept through dinner. At a crowded pizza place. Girl sleeps like a champ.
Juliette got a great gift: a big hardcover edition of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It came with something awesome!
|Jules loved the caterpillar almost as much as she loved Heather|
Kathy found a great use for the caterpillar on the way home.

Juliette had a great time hanging out with Heather and Drew.
|Juliette may look like she's asleep, but that's only because she is asleep.|
She didn't want to leave.
|What? Just run home, get my bouncy seat, high chair, clothes and kitty and we can stay here, it'll be fun!|
But then we showed her what winter in Chicago can be like.
|That's...that's a lot of snow, guys. Maybe it's okay if we go back home.|
*Drew's real name is Jules. Now, how could we ignore that? We totally turned it into a photo op.
|Jules and Jules hang out at the Aquarium.|
Thanks, Heather and Drew, for a good time!
