We love to make the most of our time in Chicago so we met up with Joan and the girls to tour the Lincoln Park Zoo with Charlie. Kenny and I hadn't been there in several years and this was Charlie's first trip. We weren't that excited about the zoo, but it was a good size for the few hours we had in the afternoon. Maybe next time we will try another zoo. It was great to see Joan and the girls though and so great to see Charlie playing with his cousins.

Where are the animals?
The adults had a good laugh since we saw so many animals going to the bathroom, but this guy...he almost caught a bunny running through his area.
Anna was SO sweet with Charlie and he listened to her and held hands nicely. Hmmm...can I borrow her?
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it. -- Mother Teresa
Kenny and I have been married since November 2005. We have an amazing little boy, Charlie, that joined our family in June 2008. Kenny had the majority of a brain tumor removed in August 2008. That medical experience changed our lives for the better and we know now what really matters the most. We both love to travel and love to read but most of all we love to spend time together. Michelle loves shopping for bargains, cooking and getting a few moments to relax. Kenny loves cars and all other things engine powered. He has passed that love to little Charlie. Charlie loves to play with cars and trucks, read books and make his parents proud. I write this to record our family moments.
