Brookfield Zoo

Our little family decided to take a day trip to Chicago and visit Brookfield Zoo. Ok, so it’s not exactly beauty in “the bend,” but this zoo was stunning nonetheless 😉

I’m not happy with the outcome of this picture color-wise but I couldn’t resist capturing their brand-new baby gorilla Nora and her mama. 🙂

This little lady was so friendly, she bent her long neck all the way down so I could practically kiss her nose. I loved spending time with her.

We didn’t have time to stop and take pictures of the architecture, which I was looking forward to, (next time!) but as we were leaving, the sky put on a beautiful show for us, so I took this one for my mama, as she recently developed an affinity for capturing steeples.
