An Afternoon at the Zoo

Since I am on Funemployment until July 5, one of my major goals is to spend some time with my sister and my adorable nephew. Mostly I've just been lazy and sitting around in my pajamas well into the early afternoon (guess what I'm wearing right now) but on Monday I did have the pleasure of going to Lincoln Park Zoo with Tricia and Bobby.

It was the perfect day for it. Sunny and around 75 degrees and we took full advantage of it considering that a Chicago style heatwave is threatening the later part of the week. Here are some photos:

Why does Bobby look so unhappy when I am holding him?

Trish and I grabbed lunch from Cafe Brauer and this was about the time that she noticed that Bobby's full diaper had leaked all over the both of them. Ooops. Nevertheless, we grabbed our grilled chicken sandwiches to go and had an impromptu picnic on the lawn near the cafe and it was so nice. Bobby was like the Lincoln Park greeting committee saying hi to everyone who passed. After that we saw a few more animals and then headed home. Hopefully I will have a few more opportunities to hang out with those two before I start the new job.
