Fun at the St. Louis Zoo

Despite off and on rain all day, we had so much fun at the St. Louis Zoo last weekend. Lil’ Miss K absolutely loved the train and the carousel. The best part about the zoo – it’s free! Tip: parking is $15, but if you get there early, there’s on-street parking only about a block farther away.

Photos of the Day: A Day at the Zoo

Many of my facebook friends have seen these photos, but my blog friends have not. It’s funny how things change once you’re a parent. For my birthday this year, we spent a day at the zoo!

The Kansas City Zoo has a great new penguin exhibit.
Elephants are one of my favorites, because they are so smart! We watched this one paint a piece of art.
I was given the once-over by this guy.

Day 268: A trip to the zoo!

I have friends who are on a mission trip in Mozambique, Africa. When they first arrived a few days ago, they got to go on an African Safari where they saw all kinds of wild animals. As much as I’d love to be with them, this is the closest I’ll get for now – a trip to “Africa” and other part of the world at the Kansas City Zoo. Here are my top five favorite photos of the day. Which one is your favorite?

An elephant marches toward its food.
A lazy gorilla basks in the sunlight.
A lemur poses perfectly for my photo.
Two baboons look on at something with interest.
This bird, maybe some kind of parrot(?), nibbles at a clover.
