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.

Missouri Botanical Garden

After a couple of posts of portrait sessions I did this weekend, I’m back to sharing photos from our St. Louis weekend getaway. I had a hard time not publishing all of my photos from the Missouri Botanical Garden. It’s such a beautiful place! We got there an hour and a half before it closed, which wasn’t nearly enough time. But we enjoyed trekking our way around the grounds and looking at the Chinese Lantern Festival displays, which would have been even more gorgeous if we’d had time to visit at night.

St. Louis Vacation | Gateway Arch

My husband, Lil’ Miss K, and I took a short weekend getaway to St. Louis last weekend. Lil’ Miss K had a great time exploring the Gateway Arch, Missouri Botanical Gardens, St. Louis Zoo, and World Bird Sanctuary. She got a bit tired and grumpy on our last day, but overall she was a great traveler. She isn’t one to sleep in our arms or in a stroller anymore, so she was go-go-go the entire time!

Here are a few photos of the arch. The first two give you a perspective of what it looks like inside, and the second two are two photos I tried to shoot at a non-cliche angle. More photos to come once I have time to sort through them.
