Phoenix Zoo is a cute zoo that offers you the chance to pet stingrays and giraffes as well as get up close to squirrel monkeys.


2009/11 - Las Vegas (55 Photos)
Las Vegas, Nevada is an interesting place you have to visit at least once. Maybe twice if you like the shows. I'm not a gambler.


2009/11/08 - Chicago (40 Photos)
A trip to Millennium Park and a walk down Michigan Avenue. I can't believe it took me this long to get a shot of the nicely polished Cloud Gate (aka Bean)!


2009/10/25 - Forest Preserves (24 Photos)
An attempt to capture some of the Fall foliage before it disappears. Photos 1-15 were taken at St. James Farm in Warrenville, IL and photos 16-24 at Meacham Grove in Bloomingdale, IL.


2009/06/14 - Pride of the Fox (48 Photos)
Held along the Fox River in St. Charles, Illinois, the Pride of the Fox Riverfest offers carnival rides, ski shows, food, crafts, and events for the whole family. My favorite was the Canine Capers who performed tricks, mostly with frisbees.


2009/05/31 - Lincoln Park Zoo (28 Photos)
I can't believe it's been four years since our last visit to Lincoln Park Zoo! It's a great free zoo and the weather was perfect for checking out all the animals. I'm particularly fond of the photo I got of the caiman.


2009/05/29 - Peck Farm Park (14 Photos)
Peck Farm Park in Geneva, Illinois has a free butterfly house full of the beautiful winged and colorful insects, as well as flowers. There weren't many of each this early in the season, however. A second visit will be necessary before they close at the end of Summer.
