Today was the first semi-nice day this year. It has been a very cold and snowy winter. We took advantage of the weather by heading to the zoo, along with everyone else in Chicago with kids, it seemed. The zoo was more packed than most weekends during the summer. It was pretty chilly in the morning, but the temperature heated up by almost 25 degrees in a couple of hours!
At first, I wasn't so much into the zoo animals - the big cats were a bit scary and I didn't like the naked mole rats one bit! - but I discovered something called a playground. It was fun!
I even got to see a grizzly bear swim! So many people were watching him swim, the big viewing building was packed and standing room only!
