We live by an awesome place called Phillips Park, which is run by our park district. I have gone there since I was little. It is a very small zoo, but you can tell the staff that work there really enjoy what they do and do their best to give the animals a nice home. AND they have an awesome playground area. AND it’s free! High score for us!
Anyhow, we went to see Santa there at the visitor’s center because I avoid the mall like the plague. The very minute we walked in, Quinn refused to see Santa. In fact, the mastodon bones and teeth in the visitor’s center that he has seen 100 times suddenly became the most interesting thing in the world to see. So, no picture with Quinn this year!
