TDF2015BrookfieldZoo7Tanya caught this leopard as it yawned giving us a great view of those teeth.

TDF2015BrookfieldZoo8Alex’s favorite animal. Of course she loves ’em all, but this is her fav.

TDF2015BrookfieldZoo9Taylor’s favorite animal.  She really wants a live miniature one. Can someone get on that?

TDF2015BrookfieldZoo10 This was totally cool.  Dolphin would blow air rings and play with them as the floated to the surface.

TDF2015BrookfieldZoo11This young ape was pretty engaging while we were there.


We took our visitors into the city.  A beautiful day to visit Millennium Park and get some shots with iconic Bean.
