When we visit Chicago, I always try to plan one last special activity that we can all do together on the way home. This year, I decided we should visit the Lincoln Park Zoo in the city, something I haven’t done for probably 35 years!
There’s something magical about seeing exotic animals amid the skyscrapers of a big city:
Even when those skyscrapers are partially hidden by fog. I was hoping for a better view of the skyline, but what we saw was lovely in its own way.
We didn’t stay long, because at this point, Ryan had been out of town for a full week, and we were all anxious to get home. But we really enjoyed having a chance to see another Chicago landmark before we hit the road!
