My brother Dorian and his girlfriend, Ashley, came to visit and to celebrate the new year. We went into the city for dinner and then to Zoo Lights. During the winter they light the Lincoln Park zoo at night. It is free and so fun. There was live music, hot chocolate, animals and Christmas lights, what more could you ask for? Many of the animals were sleeping. The baby gorilla and its mama were sleeping side by side and holding hands. It was precious. Though, I couldn’t get a good picture through the glass. Hazel slept the whole way home in the snuggly, even amidst the noise on the bus and train. We then headed back to the house for a heated game of monopoly and watched the ball drop. Happy New Year!!!
