Zoolights at Brookfield Zoo

We took a trip to Chicago to get some Chicago lights. We stopped at Jill and Jay’s and had some wine before we headed out into the cold. It was cold, but not unbareable. Taj and Jay road the train and we waited on line to see Santa (Taj’s only visit of the season). There pics came out horribly, but we did snap one (that was equally as horrible, but free):

We also headed to the Holiday Dose Market at Venue One on Randolph St. the next day. Jill was working with the fantastic maple syrup to the chefs man, Tim Burton of Burton’s Maplewood Farm. And seriously, that maple syrup aged in whiskey barrels was some of the best maple syrup I’ve ever had. Taj asked for multiple samples and Ethan brought a bottle home (not for use on frozen waffles).

Jill and Jay were great Chicago hosts! We had a great time and Taj is already asking when we go back and see Jay.
