Hello dear friends!
I want to thank you all for your birthday wishes
last Tuesday! It was my birthday and my family
and I spent the day at the St. Louis Zoo!
I had so much fun taking pictures! There was so much
to see. It is a very magical place and of course I was
mesmerized by the carousel.
The grizzly bear was fun to watch. He kept turning circles and would
jump in the water to cool off.
The giraffes are one of Lindsey's favorite animals!
One of my favorite exhibits is the flight cage. It was
built in 1904 for the World's Fair that took place right
here on these grounds.
There's also a butterfly pavillion, and believe me, it's
not easy catching one still enough to photograph!
I really enjoyed watching the black necked swans skimming
around their pool. So beautiful and peaceful. I could have
watched them all day.
The new sea lion tunnel was awesome! You can walk through
and watch them swimming over and around you.
It was well over 100 degrees that day, but there were plenty of
indoor exhibits for us to get in out of the heat so we paced
ourselves. I had a great birthday! The best part was that for
the first time in what seemed like forever, all of my family was
off on my birthday! What a great gift that was!
Thank you all for visiting the zoo with me today!
Have a wonderful day!
