St. Louis Road Trip...Part 1 THE ZOO

This weekend has to be ranked on up there as one of my favorites.  There really wasn't near enough time to do all that we wanted so a road trip back is definitely in our future.   Our little adventure began Saturday morning at the St. Louis Zoo.  The best part of this stop was that it was FREE.  This zoo was really one of the best I've been to.  You could see the animals so well and get pretty close to them.  I loved every second of it and I could've spent the whole day there but we were a little rushed.

The giraffes are always a favorite. 
So pretty.

Except for this one...it was kind of ugly.

The fam taking a break to see where we were going next.

I think this is the first zoo I've been to where I could get a close picture of the lions.  Usually, they are so far away or behind a glass.  This was awesome.


Caley said that this was definitely the Auburn Tiger.

The Chimpanzees...another favorite.  They are so amazing to watch.  If I had the time, I really could have stayed a while here.
That's some serious dry skin.

Not much action with the hippos.  They pretty much just chilled the whole time.
It didn't take too long until Caley was asking to be carried.  I was the last one tagging along in the back most of the time.  I didn't like being rushed through the zoo...too many things I could miss :)
Not sure if this is a seal or a sea lion...anyone know the difference?

This beautiful peacock was spreading its feathers to protect itself.  Gorgeous.

The komodo dragon...it looks like it's ready to attack me.
Cute little Prairie Dog munching on some corn.
Carter's turn to rude piggy back.
The penguin exhibit was absolutely amazing!   Love it...you could get so close to them.  This penguin was cracking us up because he wasn't moving the whole time.  I'm not sure if he was asleep or what but he was like a statue.

Next up...the Arch and City Museum.
