Kids Visiting; Trip to St. Louis Zoo













 



     As you can tell by last week's missing blog post, we have been rather busy around here. Our kids from out west, Erin and husband Sean, and Daniel, have been visiting. I have only managed to snap a few photos of the day it was nearly 70 degrees last Saturday--way weird for us in the mid-west! I forgot to grab my good camera, so the quality from my phone camera will have to do here, which isn't the best especially from a distance. I think half of the people in St. Louis were at the zoo that day. And no wonder; it was delightful! Our favorite animal was the baby orangutan, and it's daddy who was reading the local newspaper apparently.  (Perhaps literacy is over-rated?)
     Hoping you are enjoying a few days of good weather, too!

  2. It's funny how you never go to the local attractions until company comes to town. Then you remember how fun it really is!

  3. We went to the Indianapolis Zoo this past Saturday (only a 2 hour 45 min drive from Chicago). And it was so much fun..a little colder than your outing as it only got to about 40 degrees..not too bad though. We had a great time. My middle son was just saying that our next zoo trip (we like to visit zoos) needs to be the St. Louis Zoo. So we'll see..that's a little over 4 hours of driving. We normally do 1 day trips, but would probably make that a weekend getaway if we went. Heard it's a nice one. We have Brookfield Zoo by us and it is over 200 acres and so far all the ones we've visited are much smaller, but each one has something special that others don't.

    1. Your son is correct! You do need to visit the St. Louis Zoo. It is the best zoo I have ever seen, including the San Diego zoo, and it is free. And it isnt a far drive from you, either. Let me know when you come and Id love to meet you there.
