Katherine settled in to watch the zoo enthusiasts. She envied the toddlers strapped into their strollers, head back, mouth open, having their afternoon naps. How wonderful it would be to hitch a ride with one them, and take a quick nap herself. A child needed someone to push them in a stroller, to push them on a swing, and someone to read to them.

A wikipedia moment: Lincoln Park Zoo is a free 35-acre zoo located in Lincoln Park in Chicago, Illinois. The zoo was founded in 1868, making it one of the oldest zoos in the U.S when the Lincoln Park Commissioners were given a gift of a pair of swans by Central Park’s Board of Commissioners in New York City In 1874, the swans were joined by a bear cub from the Philadelphia Zoo the first animal purchased for the zoo. The bear became quite adept at escaping from its home and could frequently be found roaming Lincoln Park at night.
