The Museum of Science and Industry

This is my favorite museum in Chicago.  Of course, I haven't been to all of them, but out of all the sites I've been to in Chicago, this is my favorite.  Especially the You! Experience, formally known as Body Slices.  This is the second time I've been and anyone who has seen my scrapbook has seen the photo's of the body slices exhibit I saw the first time around.  While we were in Chicago it just happened to be a free month at the museum.  So Lori, Harrison, David, Hannah, and I all went to the museum.  This kids had a blast.  We walked a step behind them, and just followed them around, letting them lead the way, with the exception of the things we all wanted to see.  Lori wanted to see the baby chicks hatching, and David wanted to go to the kid's only section.  I wanted to see the body slices again.  It would take so much to cover everything in the museum, I don't think I've seen it all.  Some the things they have are a coal mine, a farming section, a technology section, trains and airplanes, and so much more.  If you find yourself in Chicago, you should definitely check it out.

David has been waiting years to go here!

Poor Harrison was shirtless for half the visit due to some 
over zealous water play.

Damnit. Next time give me warning before you show dead sliced people on the blog. I just about lost my breakfast.
