so, as many of you know we have been in chicago for the last two weeks. dave has been in class at north park and the kids and i have been staying at my in-laws (aka: mimi & papa) in naperville. we have had so much fun seeing old friends, hanging out at the pool and going on excursions! yesterday i took the kids and their best bud nathan to brookfield zoo. when the kids were younger and we lived here we had a membership and came often - however in all those years we never spent an entire day there. we arrived around 10:30am and left at 5pm. we all had a blast!!
