Our first successful animal: The Elephants
Joel amusing himself in the zoo with NO visible animals
Next big hit: The Giraffes!
Thank goodness for Sting Ray Bay! The boys and I touched real sting rays...
Did I mention that the St. Louis zoo just happens to be all up-hill? So not only do you get to sweat like a pig because of the weather you also get to push your kids up the hill both ways in the gawd awful heat. See how amused we are?
(well, Sam seems amused)
On the way out we saw some more shade bathing animals.
King of the Jungle
We left the zoo a little disappointed, with tired sweaty kids, and feeling ready to take a shower!
Vacation 2010 to be cont'd....
