We especially wanted to see Sue, the T-Rex.
This is Sue's actual head:
They couldn't mount her head on the model because it weighed too much.
We also saw the famous lionesses that killed several people:
Luca made quite the face, trying to imitate another large cat:

It was a fun trip, although tiring and just a bit too long for Luca's attention span. We missed some exhibits, but we'll probably go back someday (once the road construction is done!!!).

Just "photoshop" Luca in that last one with me. I think he was being grumpy and didn't want another picture taken.
It was a perfect day for a hike!
Here's the full album with additional pictures from the Field Museum:
