Go here if you live in Chicago

I didn't really intend to have many posts on "where we went today..." but it's hard to help that in the summer. So much of our time is spent at the playground and not so much on projects that if we happen to go somewhere interesting it feels worth posting. (Unlike my parents, we don't have a wading pool to entice us to experiment with outdoor art activities. )
So, anyway, this is my recommendation for the North Park Village Nature Center in Chicago. So green and pretty, shady, spotted with not-so-wildlife wandering around, ponds crowded with lily pads and other water life, picnic tables, walking paths, playground, etc. Makes for a great afternoon of play, exploration and a feeling of being out of the city. I think we'll go often this summer.
Here's an example of the not-so-wildlife. City deer. (Today we saw about 5 of these, last time I saw 15.)

Hanging out in the parking lot.

Nursing in public. (I hear she was scolded by offended passersby later.)

I too love that picture of the Mama deer. Thanks for the suggestion. We are in Chicago land so we will have to put that on our list. :-)

How gorgeous! We will definitely put that on our list of places to see if we ever get to Chicago.

OMG. I think I just peed! (The "scolded by offended passerbys"...I know the feeling kid.) :)

I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better. But then again: That’s my opinion.
