We spent the week of Thanksgiving in Chicago with Sarah, Adam, and Caleb. Sarah is expecting a little girl in January so a lot of our time was spent moving their office from the second floor to the basement, and then painting one wall with pink and gray stripes to turn it into a nursery. The crib and dresser got set up, but there's still some decorating to do. The last night we were there, we rearranged the living room to make space for the Christmas tree, which will then be used for baby paraphernalia. The weather was unusually warm, so Saturday night we took off to the Lincoln Park Zoo to see the Zoo Lights.
The zoo was packed but it was still possible to walk through the zoo to see the amazing variety of lights. What you can't see in the still photos are all the interactive lights. The only disappointment (to Caleb) was that the polar bears and penguins were "sleeping." He told the Sunday School director that it was all his mother's fault since she made us eat early! Actually, we were incredibly lucky to get a table at a restaurant just across the street from the zoo. We ate there a year ago, and it's a very family-friendly place with good food.
So here's Week 48: The Zoo Lights
If you look closely at the bottom left photo, you can see a cute almost five year old peeking out! Off to link up with Helena and my fellow SNAPpers (a bit late since the photos didn't get edited until late this afternoon.)
