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.

Springtime at the Zoo

We recently made our first trip of the season to the zoo! We went first thing on a rainy, dreary Friday morning, thinking it wouldn’t be crowded at all. We were wrong! There were tons of school groups there. But we still enjoyed ourselves – spring and fall are by far the best times to visit the zoo. The animals were so active! We got to see two monkeys jumping furiously from branch to branch chasing each other for several minutes, and my favorite moment was when Lil’ Miss K walked up to the glass at the penguin exhibit and the penguins immediately hopped out of the water and waddled over to check her out. We have season passes to the zoo, so we’ll be back several times this year.

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.

Creative blog title, right?

Since this is our first winter in a house, our outdoor lights are pretty skimpy. We’re hoping to stock up on lights when they go on sale after Christmas. I bought these cute little guys at Target a couple of years ago, so they’ll just have to be a bit lonely in our front lawn this season. Looking at Christmas lights is my husband’s favorite holiday tradition. What is yours?
