Taking a break from Facebook, so might as well give my website some love.
Had a great day today, went to Brookfield Zoo, for you non Chicagoans, it is a zoo in the western suburbs of Chicago. Been a surprisingly cool summer so far, so it made for a pleasant day at the zoo.
Saw the Dinosaurs alive exhibit, some life size dinosaurs we on display:
Also, there were feathered dinos there as well.
What I found interesting, even looking a little chicken like, they are still dangerous looking creature.
I really liked how they were in a forest setting, with real plants. There were control panels for some of the dinosaurs to make them breathe, roar, swing their tails and move a bit.
At the end, there was a full sized T-Rex. That alone made the entry fee worth it. There were also real fossils and reproductions of fossils in the air conditioned tent. Later in evening we went to see fireworks, which I learned a long time ago, to never try to take photos of.
