Yes, another zoo!! Why not? Oliver loves them, we wanted to go to Chicago, and what better thing to do on a summer trip?! We were smarter this time. We skillfully avoided the Merry Go Round until the end of our visit. Wise move. He asked for it a few times, because he's smart and now knows that zoo=Merry Go Round, but we were able to distract him with all the cool animals, snow cones, and lunch. It was a beautiful day, and we had a great time. As usual, it seems that many of the animals were "napping" somewhere hidden when we visited. Why does this happen at every zoo we visit? Is it just the heat of the summer? Should we be visiting the zoo in the winter? Marty's dad decided it was a scam. They just pretend they have polar bears, giraffes, and sea lions so that you'll walk by their pen and shrug and say, "They must be sleeping," when really they don't have any at all, saving themselves millions in raw meat and dead fish. Oh well, we saw enough that it was definitely worth the trip, and of course got lots of great pictures.
Comparing tongue colors.
Walking with Mam-aw and Pop-pop. No, not to a Cubs game. What made you think so?
Finally, we rounded a corner, and what did Oliver spy? That's right, you guessed it . . .
MERRY GO ROUND!!!!! RUN!!!!!
