What is wilson silverleaf? We're organitarians; it's best for our bodies and the planet. We cloth diapered Nina for the same reason. We drive a hybrid car & wish we could afford solar panels on our house. I'm a strong advocate for homebirth, full-time mom, & also a movie junkie. We don't have a tv though; we watch dvds on our computer. We love contradancing. I garden & knit; Larry's a puzzle lover & plays fantasy football.

training show at the shedd

Though the ending was a little rough we really enjoyed the aquarium, and we got to see a training show, which is where they just bring the animals out and do some training exercises in front of a crowd to get the animals acclimated. They ask you to be quiet and not applaud or stand up and it's amazing how cooperative everyone was.

While we were waiting for the show to start (and during it) the dolphins in the tank were really showing off and playing. Here are my two favorite shots out of the many I took.

This is how close the lady with the sea lion got, it was pretty cool.

Okay, one more, with a good view of the Adler Planetarium and Lake Michigan in the background. And as an aside, I have never seen the lake as pretty and turquoise green as it was that day, from what I remember it is usually a much darker green. I marveled about it the whole walk home.
