Our Anniversary

On our anniversary this year Brian planned a fun day of museum hopping in downtown Chicago for the two of us. It was so much fun to go to the museums, because we hadn't been there since we were kids. First, we went to the Museum of Science & Industry where we visited exhibits about everything from weather to trains to genetic engineering. They even had an actual submarine in the museum!

Next, we went to Loyola University's (where Brian attends school) Museum of Art (LUMA). Brian had gone their before as a mandatory visit for one of his Theology classes & couldn't wait to take me there to see the amazing art. We took a tour of the museum, which consisted of learning all about the art that was created during the Medieval, Renaissance, & Baroque time periods all revolving around Christianity. The art was absolutely incredible!! I really enjoyed LUMA. Then, we went to lunch at Ditka's Restaurant, a sports bar/restaurant that is in Chicago. Neither of us had ever been there before so we were excited to go there, because it is owned by the Chicago Bears former coach Mike Ditka. The restaurant was decorated in Chicago sports memorabilia & the food was awesome.

We ended the day by going to the Adler Planetarium. After walking around & viewing all of the exhibits we went to one of the shows called "Journey to the Stars" that was really cool, because the screen was on the ceiling and had images taken directly from space telescopes.

It was a great day celebrating 6 years together & getting to spend time together doing something out of the ordinary.
