We've made three trips down to the Lincoln Park Zoo in the past few weeks. The first time with our church friends (no Joel - he was at G&G Seitz's):
The second time with our friends, Aaron & Jen and their kids Ella & Silas:
Both times Samuel really wanted to visit the south end of the zoo where they have the "Farm at the Zoo". Now, if you are a McLallin family member who has spent your life in 4H, this farm amounts to the lamest showing of a farm you've ever seen. But for my little city boy, he thinks he has arrived when he visits here. I suppose that means that we need to get ourselves to Noble County a little more often!
Here are the boys enjoying themselves:
I hope you notice that there are exactly ZERO animals in these pictures. Samuel looked at the two cows in the dairy barn for all of 2 minutes and then we went into the exhibit barn and spent the rest of our time there. I'm glad this zoo is free b/c it would have been really annoying to drive all that way and then spend money for them to dig in a dirt box and pop out of a giant egg. Oh the things that entertain preschool boys.
