not home yet

ha!  looking through photos i realized i stopped with our summer travel photos with quite a few images left out.  so, taking you with me back to the windy city.

we spent a day at the lincoln park zoo after a wonderful lunch.

we really delighted in the farm portion.

much of it was familiar to our kids.  several times micah commented that his teachers would like to have some of these things in their classroom.

it was hot but we knew where the air conditioning and water sprinklers were.

i can’t stop imagining how amazing it would be to have a tractor tire swing.  i’ve never seen one, but i can imagine it!

oh, and i can’t stop thinking of this grove of painted orange trees.  not exactly in the zoo, but close.

p.s.  for you, callan:
