Let's face it. Summer in Chicago is expensive. As a work at home mom, paying for summer day camp is a daunting thought. If my kids wanted to go to camp, I'd do all I could to make it happen. That being said...they don't have any interest in camps. SO...it's Camp Mommy for my team this summer.
Some strategically placed memberships are a great way to get the kids out and exploring without breaking the bank.
Shedd Aquarium...SUPER fun! Membership gets you entry to all exhibits as well as the aquatic shows, which we took FULL advantage of.
Stingray Touch exhibit is just about the coolest thing my kiddos have experienced. We knew nothing about stingrays, and they actually are very cool. Yes...I did touch one...and no I won't tell you what it feels like. You'll have to stop on by and see for yourself ;)
Beluga Whales. It honestly felt like they were as curious about us as we were about them.
This was our first trip of many to the Shedd Aquarium this summer. Go Camp Mommy!
