The weekend was so gorgeous that Auntie Peggy decided to give a lonely Julia some quality one on one time at Brookfield Zoo. Lonely? Well her most dependable playmate has begun to stretch her middle school wings and was off at the movies with friends while her second most dependable playmate had a dance competition! Not feeling particularly guilty about leaving Mari and Deirdre behind, Julia popped into Auntie Peggy's car and left in a heart beat.
There was cool starfish to see.
Saw the California Condors open their wings completely for the first time ever!
Saw the lions acting A LOT like Mom and Dad do on hot days.
Went to the newly opened Bear Grotto and saw the polar bears cooling off!
Posed on a few statues around the park.
Took some pictures of Mom's favorite animal so she could see what she
Took more pictures of her favorite animal....but of course!
Then closed out the day with a trip around the carousal!!
Only 4 1/2 days left of school until the 'real' summer vacation begins. At this rate the summer weather looks like it plans on joining us for summer vacation!
P.S. Speaking of stretching her middle school wings.....
Alyssa gleefully showing off her new HEELS!! 8th grade dance was on the past Friday and graduation this Friday meant time to get dressed up! She was lovin' her new found 'height' (:
Me and Mini-Me on dance night!
