29/52 - Lincoln Park Zoo

29/52 - Lincoln Park Zoo
When I was a single mom with my oldest son Nick, I used to take him
to the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, so have many fond memories of that lovely place.
(And it's free by the way).
So when our travel group wanted to meet there on Saturday I was thrilled.
It was hot and muggy but the kids sure didn't seem to notice.
They raced around, played and we did get have some great animal sightings along the way.
The moms chatted and chatted some more.
 Something we do very well! ;)
It was great to be with these people who have become family, and we can't wait till the next time.

Wonderful shots Gail! So wish we had a zoo like that down here. Love the fact it's free! :-)

The happiness shown on those faces is priceless. And the polar bear looks like he/she is very happy too.

Looks like the kids had a great time. Isn't it nice when you can take the little ones to a place that you took your first and build memories that are just as special as you remember from the first time around?
