Day 5-7 Brookfield Zoo

We started out Wednsday as usual and went out for a hearty midwestern breakfast. Mmmm. Then we took a quick trip to Cabelas to look for some sandals for Nick. Here is Isabel in the cart: We then headed to Brookfield Zoo with the Grandparents. It is a HUGE zoo. Almost too huge to see in one day! Anastasia loved the sea lions, dolphins and the "Fari Train" (Safari Train).

Watching the sea lions swim is really fun:

Before we left we had to see the giraffes per Anastasia's request. Then we rode on the carasel which was really fun:

Until it started moving. It was a bit of an overwhelming day for a 2 year old.

Isabel woke from a nap, and was pretty mesmorized by the carosel.
After the zoo we had an insanely wonderful meal at Connie's Pizza. It was heavenly. Delicious pizza, and scrumcious tirimisu. The best I have ever had.


It was July 16th, our 4th aniversary!! It marked the fourth best year of my life! I didn't take any pictures, but we did eat a yummy midwestern breakfast, went to Chicago to REI for sandals for Nick, and then I found a cute little fabric boutique called Quiltology. I didn't find any FarFar Away fabric, but I did find some aqua and green fat quarters to make Isabel a quilted blankie. Maybe I will do it in my spare time! In the evening we went to Nick's brother Jimmy's house.


Another day with no pictures. What is up with that? We had another big breakfast and went to Nick's sister's house. We had a very low-key day relaxing. Anastasia watched a lot of TV. She loves TV. Maybe because we don't watch it at home. I watched this show called YoGabbaGabba, and it was SO WEIRD. I have a stupid song from it stuck in my head STILL. grrr. We had dinner at Aunt Marsha's house where we all sat around watching HGTV and it was a surprising highlight of our trip.
