Chicago day 2, the Zoo and North Shore Beach

Day two of Chicago
It was the hottest day of the summer so far, with temperatures topping at 100 degrees. Not to mention the humidity... We started off at the Lincoln park zoo, it was one of my favorite Zoo's I have ever been to and to make it even better it was free!! 
The boys LOVED it!
After a few hours we had had enough of the zoo, mainly due to the heat... 
Luckily right across from the zoo was "North Shore Beach". 
It was super crowded with it being memorial weekend and all, but still worth it! 
It was kind of cool being on the "other" side of Lake Michigan! 

And I apologize in advance for the 1,000 photos... 

This Polar Bear was my favorite.. He was so cute and kept putting his face against the glass like he was kissing the boys..

First Kissing Luke then moving on to Noah! 

Luke is obsessed with Birds "Bur Burs'"
So Green and Beautiful...

In this picture you can see how packed the beach was, I thought it was cool to see the city in the background too!! 

We had such a great day! I love taking trips and spending time with these three boys! If you are thinking of going to Chicago I would highly recommend it! I Love how kid friendly this city is!! Plus if you have a giant double stroller to push around, the streets are wider and less crowded then other big cities we have been to...
