Hey everyone, since Molly already made the post about what we did today, I figured I should stop procrastinating (like what I’m doing with my AP U.S. history packet, AP Literature reading, and Honors Pre-Calc packet) and just write this post.
Anyway, on Sunday, my mom, Molly, my friend Orlando, and I went to the Lincoln Park Zoo. But, instead of driving, we took the L (a train downtown) to the zoo. I had never ridden the L before, and it was just like any other normal train ride, except there was this old man, who was blind, and he was able to make it down a flight of stairs without his (guide stick is it?) touching the ground. I can’t make it down the stairs gracefully, and I can see… just thought you all should know. 🙂
So, that crosses of 36. Take the train somewhere. So, when we got to Lincoln Park, my mom kept walking and the three of us followed, and then we realized that we had gone maybe three blocks out of our way, and then after making up that ground, we were at the zoo.
So, it was about 90 degrees outside, so us Chicagoans, Molly, my mom, and I were extremely hot, but Orlando, who lives in New Orleans, had jeans on and wasn’t complaining about the weather at all. We were really jealous.
It was, however, still a nice day,and while Molly and I envied all of the animals who were not outside, who were probably sitting in front of a fan, drinking an iced tea, we still had a great time, and got to see some very fun animals.
After visiting the main part of the zoo, we decided to head to the children’s zoo, which, at the age of 16, is still my favorite. In the children’s section, you can look at ponies, cows, goats, chickens, chicks, termites, bees, and farm machinery. My favorite part, however, was the petting of the goats, that is until one of the goats made the not-so-smart decision of trying to eat my shirt. After he did that to Orlando and me, we decided the smartest idea was to get out so he didn’t eat Molly.
Much Love and Summer Fun
