HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS AND MORE

We took a field trip to the zoo today. The St. Louis Zoo is one of the few free-zoos still left in the country and we wanted to take advantage of it. Plus it's only 10 minutes from home, and you can't beat that. Christopher was able to see lots of his favorite animals up close. He seemed to have a lot of fun, especially in the monkey house. His all-time favorite animal, the lion, was a little sleepy today. And although Mommy and Daddy saw him sleeping in a tree, Christopher couldn't really locate anything that wasn't moving. It was a perfect 83 degrees and Christopher was able to stay awake past his nap time to check out the cool animals. Enjoy the photos below from our wonderful day.
