The weather here has been unseasonably warm again. So this past weekend we took advantage of it and headed off to Brookfield Zoo on Saturday. Every year, they decorate the entire zoo with tons and tons of Christmas lights. Of course, it was terribly crowded, because everyone in the city and surrounding suburbs had the exact same idea as us. But a fantastic time was had by all.
On the lion at the entrance (don't all kids who live in Chicago have a pic of themsselves on this lion???)
In the belly of a kangaroo
The giant ornament
And of course they had tons of "creatures" to take pictures with
On the buffalo
Even Uncle Bobby wanted to get on the buffalo (yeah, he's an adult?)
