mini-vaca day 1

we headed to Chicago early Friday morning - ignore the disaster that we call a garage
we started off at the Lincoln Park Zoo
cow milking barn
kangaroos - they looked a little hot & tired
mold-a-rama - score!  Totally didn't know they still had these things
just hangin out
Coop was such a trooper to ride the train with Piper
so this zoo worker was cleaning out one of the "large cats" enclosures - kinda catches you by surprise to see a lady in a cage
Chloe was bummed - the zebras (her favo animal) weren't on display
me & the hubs - see the John Hancock building behind us?  the Sears...err Willis Tower (I understand you bought a super expensive building but do you have to change it's name?!?) is way in the back kinda to the right. 
Cheesecake Factory - unfortunately our meal wasn't so good which has never happened before....not great service, took 40 min for our meals to come out (and they weren't that busy), two of our meals were screwed up...sigh....luckily the dessert rocked!
why yes...that would be a new Bitty Baby that Piper's holding
sorry but we had to do it - saw a sign for "hot asian buns" and well, you get the picture.  Piper cracked us up - she thought it was hilarious
come back tomorrow for day 2 of our mini-vaca!

Looks like a lot of fun. We used to live west of Chicago and went to American Girl Place. We loved it!

Looks like y'all had a BLAST! We love Chicago...really need to get back soon.

That picture of Piper in front of the bun sign...PRICELESS!
