Brookfield Zoo

We went to the Brookfield Zoo (nice and early to beat the heat and the crowds!) recently. We saw some butterflies. When Elsie was younger, we used to do "flutter flutter" on her cheek when we read about butterflies. She has remembered this "sign" and does it every time she sees a butterfly. In the picture below, she is doing "flutter flutter".
Then the butterfly flew away and Elsie motioned "Where did he go?".

We saw the dolphin show. Elsie was not impressed.

In the children's part of the zoo, we got to pet some goats. This was fun and really gross at the same time. Elsie kept going back to the basket to get different colored brushes for the goats.

We also took a trip to the Shedd Aquarium this summer, but forgot the camera. Elsie really loved the aquarium, especially the bottom floor, which is designed just for kids. I highly recommend it - and get there early!! They open around 8:30, and most of the crowds don't come until noon.
