Someone told me it's all happening at The Zoo

Spent a very rainy Sunday with my nephew at the Brookfield Zoo. Despite the intermittent storms, we had a good time, managing to see the lions and a leopard, dolphins, peacocks, primates, otters and a few assorted reptiles. We also stopped at two refreshment stands (at 13, he eats a staggering amount).

It was also good for him to spend some time with me on a Sunday. He used to visit my mother every Sunday and I would join them for Scrabble a couple times a month. I'm going to try to see him at least one Sunday a month -- partly to help him with the mourning process and partly because he's a nice kid and I enjoy his company.


  1. Despite the rain, it sounds like a great outing.

  2. That sounds like a really nice day. I took Bear to the Brookfield Zoo one time, and we enjoyed it. It's a nice place to spend the afternoon with your nephew.

  3. I love that zoo! It's fun to bike there or stroll anytime of the year. Such a wonderful time for the two of you for many reasons!

    I always love reading about your experiences with your nephew. :) Sounds like you had a great time.
