With the Boy at the Museum of Science and Industry--Again!!

We embraced the morning's rain and headed to the Museum of Science and Industry.  Stefan, who has always loved exploring the museum, wanted to see the Weather exhibition.  None of us were disappointed.  It is outstanding.

A few highlights:




Mr. Carlyle, I am in complete agreement!


A tornado spins in a two-story high tube.  Amazing!


A NOAA buoy reminded Stefan that it will soon be time to go to work again.




He's in his element when surrounded by science.





We were starved after chasing storms, creating lightening, causing an avalanche and gazing upon tsunamis in the making so we headed over to Hyde Park's Bon Jour Cafe for some lunch.




The rain had stopped and it was comfortably cool so we sat in the courtyard.



And finished with dessert.

It was a very good day.

Oh, here's a photo of my niece, Emily, with a Hasselblad camera:


It was taken at Stefan and Elyssa's wedding last year and belongs to the wedding photographer.  I won't be getting one.  It's the Canon Rebel EOS T2i for me!!  And that's my final answer.
