Henson Robinson Zoo, Springfield, IL

After all of the fun at Jolly Orchard, we headed to Candlewood Suites in Springfield, IL. This was about 4 1/2 hours from Jolly Orchard in Watervliet, MI. We arrived in Springfield, IL around 3:30 pm. We had a little time to kill, so we headed to the Henson Robinson Zoo. The Zoo honored our Sedgwick County Zoo pass, so it was free. Can't pass that deal up.

The Zoo was really small. Not many animals - mostly birds. They did have some spider monkeys, penguins, a snake, some goats, a couple bobcats, tortoises, and a wolverine.

We had some fun in the Zoo's gift shop playing with rubber animals and trying on masks.

Carver was a good sport. Kinnick wanted nothing to do with the rubber animals and masks.
