I can't say we miss much from living in the Chicago area, but Brookfield Zoo and Chicago's great food are two of them :P. We were able to make it out for a visit last weekend. Usually we don't go together as it is a project to have someone take care of the animals while we are gone. The farmers markets will be starting in a couple of weeks and will be keeping us very busy on the weekends. Turns out we pick a fantastic weekend to go. The midwest has been raining and cold, the sun shone and it warmed up just in time for our trip :D. My mom lives near the zoo so we stopped by her condo, dropped off our stuff, picked her up and where off. They have changed the zoo alot since we have been there last, we missed some of the older houses but the new animal homes are so nice. I really got my exercise in that day as we walked all over and left the zoo at 6pm when it closed. Here are pictures from our trip.
