Maddie took this photo of Navy Pier from the car yesterday as we were driving up to Lincoln Park Zoo. I thought it looked like it could have come from the early 1900's, so I did a little vintag-y editing.
We had an awesome time at the zoo. Well, really in the general area of the zoo. This time we actually spent a lot of time walking around the newer paths to the south, which are quite nice, and then up past the greenhouse. So much more than just an isolated zoo.
And of course we had to stop for some treats -- gluten free cupcakes from Swirlz. So tasty!
I'm very glad to put the first half of August behind me, this week has been much more to my liking. We're easing into school, working on the garden and I even made a few more jars of jam -- mixed berry this time. I'm looking forward to Autumn and a general slow down after the Summer craziness.
