On Saturday we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. I was pretty excited to go and get the kids out of the house. We got there in the afternoon and walked around. It was interesting. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot since it is a free zoo but there were enough animals to keep the kids happy.
Everything was really open. We walked through some gates and found ourselves out of the zoo and in a beautiful botanical garden. There was a wedding starting there so we boogied out of there and went for a walk to find a place for dinner.
After walking just a few blocks we found D & B’s. We hadn’t been to one of those since the good ol’ CUI days! We went in, had dinner, and Joe got a HUGE piece of chocolate cake and the birthday song! It was fun. The kids were ecstatic with the whole experience. After dinner we walked back through a park on our way to the beach. The kids played at the beach briefly and then we made our way home. It was such a fun afternoon and evening!
