the st. louis zoo

I have been asking to go to the St. Louis zoo ever since Kevin and I were in STL almost 3 years ago so when we made our trip in late July the zoo was at the top of my list of things to do. Of course the weekend we decide to head to STL it happens to be nearly 100 degrees every day but I wasn't going to let that stop our adventure.  Anyone who knows me well knows how much I LOVE zoos and aquariums.

Awww snuggling:)

Did you know that the STL zoo is the largest free zoo in the country? Isn't that awesome?  It did feel kinda weird walking into the zoo without buying a ticket.

The scariest bird we have ever seen.

Since it was soooooo HOT some of the animals were hiding... particularly the big cats.  We definitely got to see enough animals to make the trip totally worth it though.

On our little zoo adventure I realized I can zoom in even closer then I thought I could... extreme close-up!

I cannot wait to go back next time we are in St. Louis!

I love the zoo! We were there last week (my mom was in town) and got to see the baby elephant! :D

I'm so glad you're blogging it up motivates me to keep mine up!

Yay! I definitely want to go back to the zoo next time we come to STL.

If feels so good to be back to blogging, I really missed it!
