Play Date in St. Louis

This last week Baby G and I had the chance to go to St. Louis to spend time with some friends.
We got to hang out with my best friend and her little boy.
After getting to her house and eating lunch we decided to go to a park to play and see their petting zoo.

 The little boys loved it...
Can you guess what Baby G is looking at???
 If you guessed goats you were right.
 The only thing we forgot on our trip was strollers....and even though the boys are only a little over 25 pounds....they got heavy fast.
 Here they are looking in on some roosters.
 I think they both wanted to find a way to get inside that fence.
 This peacock was one of the biggest I have ever seen and it was also one of the loudest.
 It scared the boys a little bit.
 This is Dotty....She scared the boys a little bit too.....
Are all cows this big?  She just seemed really big to me.
I think this horse enjoyed having her picture taken.... Maybe she was having a good hair day.
 We walked over to the lake and my friend was saying how gross the water looked...About that time her little boy threw his favorite toy train into the water.  
There's nothing like a mother's love.....
And anti-bacterial soap.
 We realized that we forgot to bring bread to feed the ducks when a sweet lady gave us some crackers to use.  My friends little boy was really excited... 

 And started throwing the crackers into the pond
 But Baby G....
Wasn't about to let food go that easily.  I spent most of the time trying to keep him from eating the crackers and understanding that they were for the ducks..... It didn't work too well.
 I love this picture with his belly hanging out.
 He's keeping his eye on the ducks...
 And the ducks were keeping their eye on him.
 I wonder what he's thinking about....

 We enjoyed spending a little more time with the ducks before heading over to the playground.
 He was a little shy at first about going down the slide...
 So Baby G walked down to the bottom to be a encourager.
 Baby G enjoyed watching all the other kids running around at first....
 But eventually he started playing too.
He liked the ropes....
 Until he realized I was on the other side.

 This little girl took a liking to Baby G and followed him everywhere he went for a while.  Baby G didn't mind too much.
 Hard at work...
 The two boys are still a little young to really know how to play together but occasionally they would stand and look at each other.
And last but not least we finished with.....
The swings...
 And both boys absolutely loved it.

By the looks on their faces you can pretty well guess that we had a really fun...really exhausting day....And there is nothing better than your pacifier, sippy cup, and good long nap to make everything better.  I have a feeling Baby G and I will be having a lot of play dates in the St. Louis area.
