So for about 2 WHOLE DAYS my entire family was in the house together. So we had to do something all together as a family. So we took a day out in the Windy City to go to Lincoln Park Zoo and go to Twin Acres for dinner after.Isn’t that baby monkey just too cute with his momma?!This guy was too funny, he just kept swimming in circles, coming around to the window to say hi and going around to do it all over again!There were soo many of these adorable little piglets in the barn with their mommy.These meerkats just could NOT have been any cuter!!! I would have never thought of a meerkat as cute animals before but I have converted. They’re freaking adorable. This beaver was obsessed with my brother. He would swim around and then just pop up and stare at him. He was the creepy beaver. I thought they were super cute at first, and then I saw their teeth and they were like all red and bloody. YUCK, turn off..This has just got to be my FAVORITE picture!!! Doesn’t he just look so sweet?We went into this other building that was loaded with a bunch of amazing flowers and plants. My mom was really looking forward to this part of the zoo, but I certainly was not. I was sure that it was really just gonna be a giant snooze. But it was actually awesome in there! There were so many incredible plants in there that really made me feel like I was on vacation in Hawaii or something. Loved it in there!
After wearing ourselves out at a nice long day at the zoo, we headed over to Twin Acres, which is certainly more than what it looks like. It was actually one of Frank Sinatra’s favorite hang outs back in the day (he would tip each waiter $100!!) and several movies have had scenes filmed in the bar. One of the famous movies that have taken place there was The Dark Knight.
It was really quite a successful day! New recipe comin’ at ya in the next couple days!
