Last Minute Trip To The Zoo

 How about an update on Little G.  This picture was taken several weeks ago.... already sitting up like a big boy. 
 And he is sleeping well in his crib now.
 Although I still get to enjoy lots of cuddles.
 He has really been enjoying his jumper...especially outside where he can feel the grass between his toes.
 He also got to enjoy his first trip to the St. Louis Zoo.  It was a hot day and I forgot hats for the kids so we bought some zoo hats to use.
 Sissy got a purple and pink hat.  You can tell by her face that she was already burning up.
 Bubby G and Little G both got matching blue hats.  This boy was very excited about his surprise trip to the zoo.
 We always stop to see the seals first off.
 Getting in line in the underground tunnel to get a better look.
 I'm not sure Sissy every realized what we were looking at but Bubby was sure enjoying it.
 Beautiful smile from my beautiful lil girl.
 Picture of all three kiddos.
 For as hot as it was and for sitting in a car seat for so long and then a stroller....this lil boy was sure a happy camper despite it all.
 Bubby getting a closer look at the orangutans. 
 This monkey was really enjoying the people.
 Out for the count.
 Taking a break for some dip-n-dots.
 They liked the dip-n-dots as much as the animals.
 Trying to get away.
 Off to see more animals.
 Getting a close up of a llama. 
 We went to the childrens zoo where the kids could pretend to be farmers.
 Bubby making sure to take good care of his sister.  I was so proud of him.
 Nothing like sweeping up dirt off of dirt.
 Checking out all the different buildings together.
 I think this was the pretend chicken coop.
 Getting more work done.
 A little while later a random bull walked by. 
 This was when we found ourselves in the butterfly garden.  I've never been to this part of the zoo before.  It was beautiful.
 Bubby has been trying to catch butterflies in our backyard so this was very exciting for him.
 One even landed on our stroller.
 This is the part that Bubby always looks forward to the most.  The hippos.  Although all you can really see in this picture is the fish swimming with the hippos.
And the last animal we saw at the zoo was the elephants.  I might add that they make it really hard to get to the elephants at the St. Louis Zoo but it was well worth the trip.  After our 10 mile walk back to our car we were all ready for some cold water and a nap.  But it was a wonderful day full of great memories and time spent together.  Always thankful for days like this.
