Zoo Lights!

We braved the crowds and headed to Zoo Lights tonight - the annual holiday light festival at the Lincoln Park Zoo. We have been meaning to go for years but have just never made it. However, we learned an important lesson tonight: Zoo Lights on opening night is a bad idea. There were thousands of people everywhere! We could tell the animals were not too excited about having all the hordes of people around - most were hiding, trying to get some sleep. When we go next year with our little guy in tow, we will definitely not be going opening weekend!

I'm glad none of the carnivorous beasts mistook me for a walrus or a beached whale. The resemblance is uncanny.

Mom, Nannie, and me

The whole zoo was covered in Christmas lights!
