My Day Today
Today was a great day filled with fun and family. We started our day by going downtown to Lincoln Park Zoo. My little brother has been wanting to go to the zoo for such a long time and has been asking every single day. He was really excited and had a great time. I have not been to Lincoln Park Zoo in quite a while, so it was nice to go back. It was pretty crowded, but we still managed to have a nice time. After walking around for a while and seeing the animals, we walked across the street to a nature museum. The nature museum was also enjoyable, especially for my little brother. There was a room full of different water tables and activities for younger kids, so we spent a lot of time in there. He had a blast moving boats around and sticking his hands in the water. They also had some fish tanks around, and he kept running from table to table. The museum also had a butterfly room, which was pretty cool. You walk into a room filled with sunlight and flowers, and butterflies are flying all around. There are many different types of butterflies, and they have charts and pictures so you can tell which butterfly is which. After this, we came back home and ate dinner. Later, we went out for ice cream at our favorite ice cream place, The Plush Horse. There are so many different flavors to choose from, and they are unique flavors that you really do not see at other ice cream places. We got our ice cream and sat outside at the picnic tables. The ice cream was really good. It was such a beautiful day today, and I am glad I was able to spend it having fun with my family.
