While in Chicago, we made our way, bright and early one morning, to the Lincoln Park Zoo. The brisk, sunny weather was perfect for strolling, looking at the animals...or should I say, the empty cages! We were there before the zoo opened, although the grounds are always open for strolling, so most of the animals were inside, being fed and groomed.
We saw lions and giraffes from a distance, but I'm not even sure little Vijay spotted them. It wasn't until we went into the Botanical Gardens that he really perked up. Perhaps it was the colorful flowers, or maybe it was the steamy, warm air.
