Visiting the new baby monkeys at the Zoo

I got a chance to get up close to the three new baby Japanese macaque monkeys at the Blank Park Zoo. Anika, Jubei Jo, and Nikko were enjoying some play time outside when I got to snap some photos. Many thanks to Ryan Bickle and my friend, Kayla Stokes for letting me see these adorable fuzzballs up close. 

The babies play outside usually between 10am and 3pm each day, so come out and see them!

REVIEW: In-fighting is entertaining in ‘Captain America: Civil War’

"Civil War" stands out as certainly the biggest of the stand-alones, and among the best because of what it has in common with the better films in the Marvel universe: the conflict is deeply human, told humorously, and best enjoyed if you don't overthink it.
