Carter’s school was closed on Friday for faculty development, so we all took the day off and went to Brookfield Zoo. We actually contemplated going to the see if we could catch the practice runs for the Air and Water Show downtown Chicago. Once again the weather was unbelievably awesome and it was a perfect day to visit the animals. Carter loved each and every exhibit especially the giraffes and bears. We packed our lunch and Carter also enjoyed fun on the playground before we ate. By the time we left the zoo, Mom needed to stop for a coffee at Starbucks and Carter was sleeping before we got on the interstate. Fun was had by all!
