With Meghan and I living in Clay County, where she grew up and me being from Chicago, where my parents still live, there are plenty of roadtrips to make. I’m pretty close to my parents and I have a good group of friends I’ve had since High School or earlier that live there, so our trips are usually made on a monthly basis.
This last weekend’s trip was our first since we got married though and while it was for my friend Bill’s bachelor party, my Mother, Mary Sue, said she wanted to take us to Brookfield Zoo, where she is a member. My Dad, Jim, came as well. It was a hot Friday and we arrived at about 11 a.m.
Mom and Dad. Guess which is which!
First thing we did was beat feet for the dolphin show, but I’ll put some of those pics in a later post. Here’s some pictures of us and some animals at the rest of the Zoo. We’ll post dolphins, butterflies and cute kid candids later.
King of the naps.
If that guy is king, I've gotta at least be a baron of naps. Photo by Meghan.
Just because this polar bear is against global warming, doesn't mean he has to like Al Gore.
Sorry, I'm not coming up with anything as far as eagle-based puns to caption this with.
Lot of competition in the arena of napping on hot days at the zoo.
Apparently, even camels aren't huge fans of getting their picture taken while eating.
Here's Meghan. I took this right after me. I think we'll end this post with a picture of one of her favorite animals....
The stately giraffe! Picture by Meghan. That's all, thanks for reading.
