We got everyone up early to go to the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. It was pretty amazing!!! It was huge and had such beautiful landscaping and buildings for gift shops and eateries. The highlights for me had to be the exhibits we don't have at our zoo such as, the penguins, polar bears, sting rays and dolphins. The exhibit for the monkeys was amazing. I don't know if the pictures will do it justice. I also loved the children's zoo petting area. Caroline and Carter loved the goats. There was one goat that loved Carter (or loved all the crumbs in his stroller!!) We were there for about 6 or 7 hours. Then we went home and Caroline played dress up with Grabielle and Bicala and then had another delicious dinner. This will be the first of several zoo posts!!! We took tons of pictures and we have some of Nannie's too.
