Ok, the truth is out. I collect squished pennies from everywhere I go that has squished penny machines. The trip to Chicago was no exception! L to R: Chicago Skyline, Rainforest Cafe Chicago, Chicago Cubs, 2 from Navy Pier, Museum of Science and Industry and U-505 Submarine.
Here is the FABULOUS group of kids and their talented director, posing in front of the big purple "Barney Bus".
Saturday, after warm ups and performing for the judges, it was a quick change of clothes and off to Six Flags Great America for the day. Here's Marvin the Martian in a very lame theme park parade...Awards were given out at a ceremony in the park. Yes, we came home with a trophy!
Sunday found us at the Field Museum seeing SUE, among other things. Now that was very cool.
One highlight there, for me, was seeing the U-505 Submarine. Really... the WHOLE THING!
Stay tuned for "the story inside the story" and... more.
