My Kind of Farm...Chicago is My Kind of Farm...

Now this is the type of farm I can handle!

Check out the pictures from my new camera! A little present Joe and I got for ourselves and just in time for Maise's upcoming 3rd Birthday this weekend. Note to self...remove date stamp. Grrr, these are some great pictures that I won't be framing on wall do to those silly numbers across the bottom. I am sure I will get over it as the debut shoot produced 51 pictures. It is so easy to keep snapping when you got a new toy. We got a 14 MG Kodak Easy Share for a steal. The screen on the back is huge and everything on the camera itself is so easy. I am not a huge photo person but I obviously LOVE taking pictures of the kids! You gotta have a good camera these days...I know I feel lost when I don't have one. The world has become so picture worthy!

Ok enough of my camera! We hit the zoo today because it was such a nice day, a bit windy but awesome! Don't worry not more Brookfield pictures we actually had a little city fun today before I had class. The plan was to do the farm and then hit the road but once we were there we had to explore. A while back I was almost bored of Lincoln Park but it was so nice visiting after we have been doing Brookfield faithfully for the past 3 years as Zoo Members! We will have to do it again!

The farm was awesome and there were even baby chicks...THANK GOODNESS...because we kept telling Nessa that was what we were going to see. YAY we are not liars!

So what did we see today? Well lets take a peek:
 There were goats!
 And the biggest bunny EVER!
 Ah the comforts of Brookfield! $2.00??????? Yeah we still bought 2...
 The baby chicks for Nessa!
 Maise got a kick out of being a cracked egg.
 Where is Maise?
 Beep Beep!
 I'm done this thing don't move!
Why won't they just stand nice for my picture? Funny story Maise actually stood there waiting in a nice pose while we chased Nessa around.
These piggy's were hungry! They were almost knocking at the door. They were giving it head bumps and snorts it was super cute!
 I don't remember Lincoln Park having ponies, glad we saw them especially this one. So pretty!
 I love these skyline shots!
And now we are exploring outside the farm. Hello Mr. Camel! Can't help but feel for the one with the broken hump...he has been there forever!
 Silly duck you are not a flamingo!
 The monkeys were super active - I LOVE when that happens!
 The lions were not so active but still pretty!
 Who needs an active lion when you have a roaring Nessa?
 The seals were right about to eat so they kept coming up to say hi!
The walk back to the car Maise walked on the wall with daddy. Every wall to Maise is Humpty Dumpty's wall so this was a huge accomplishment for her. Something to scratch off the old bucket list!
 And that's a wrap! Thanks for joining us on our trip to the zoo!
 Have a great week!
