‘Tis the season

Yesterday we drove to downtown Chicago to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Charlie is the perfect age for zoo trips — he recognizes the animals, talks about them nonstop, and never gets bored. Delightful!

    I almost felt like I was there! Great pics!

    Nothing better than to go to the zoo on a beautiful day–including at-home projects.” 🙂

  2. So cute! I love how distracted Charlie is in the video … every sound gets his little head swiveling to see what else there is to see. What a great place for kids … we love it too!!

  3. These are absolutely wonderful!!!

  4. Hey Jess!

    I happened upon your blog via your Facebook info–it is so fun to see where you are in life–I’m going to have to add you to our blog list! Can you remember the days when you, Emily, and I would talk about having kids during English Comp? Congrats on your second being on the way and so close!

    Love in Christ, Bethany

  5. Awww. How fun. I love the “should I think about being terrified right now?” expression on his face at the beginning of the video when that other kid screams. 🙂 Too cute.
