St Louis Zoo and Suson Park

Kiersten had strep during spring break, so she didn't get to do a whole lot. One thing she did get to do toward he end of the week was visit the zoo with the rest of the family. It was a perfect day for the zoo, because it was a little chilly and drizzly. We also got there right when it opened at 9, so there was no crowd whatsoever. We barely saw anyone else except for inside the buildings.
I am sharing this picture because I almost deleted this one because I thought Ben was a rando. But it turns out he just looks different in pictures now that he's skinny.
The first place we went was the children's zoo because it's free before 10 AM, and also, we thought the girls would like to play inside the discovery center.

Once we got back outside, it was brisk, but not at all unpleasant.
The playground was wet and slippery, so we had to rush the kids past.

We also made it to the carousel before 10, so it was free as well. I guess we will not be using up all of our tickets that came with the membership again this year.

The gorillas were outside, and the girls really enjoyed watching them. Evie pointed out which one is "in love" with her. haha.

Kara always has to see the big cats. We were there at the perfect time for them to be up and walking around.

Near the end of our visit, Kara's hand was pooped on by a bird. It was not so funny to her, but the rest of us thought it was great.
This weekend we met up with some friends at Suson park. We had never been there before. It was pretty fun. Tons of people were there, but the playground was big enough to accommodate plenty of kids. There is also a large fishing pond and a petting zoo.
The girls really liked the animals.
The weather was perfect. Not too hot, with a nice little breeze.

Evie claimed this pig as her boyfriend.

Not much is cuter than baby goats.

After the park, we all headed to Baskin Robins for some ice cream. It was a fun and gorgeous day.

Oh, I think the girls are much cuter than baby goats. The girls are beautiful and Ben looks great and super skinny.
