The horses were very friendly with the performers. They were also very gorgeous (the horses) and well trained. These people must practically eat, sleep and breath horses.
They started off the show with a large puddle in the arena. A woman came out and danced in the water. Then out came this white horse that she danced with and that drank water from her hands.
There were stunt/trick riders. And lots of acrobatic feats while performers bounced around on the end of wires over the horses' heads.
When we got to Chicago, we took a taxi to our hotel. The kids really enjoyed the hotel room.
Jack liked holding the room key.
The next morning we went to Shedd Aquarium. We all enjoyed getting to see the sights there.
And this is why I need an SLR camera and a class on how to use it:
We got to watch a dolphin show.
And I was lucky enough to have Oreos from our hotel room in my bag for a snack when the natives got restless.
We rented a car in Chicago and drove the 4 hours to Grand Rapids. When we got into the hotel there, the kids acted like they had never seen a TV.
At this point, I was rocking a raging flu and couldn't wait to get home so I could collapse on the couch. Which is where I stayed for the next 72 hours. Everyone else caught it, too. Today marks the first day no one has a fever since we got back last Sunday (the 24th). Thank God for the little things.
