St. Louis Zoo

Here are some of my favorite photos from today. This elephant was doing a cute little dance for us. You know those times when you say something to someone in your group, but it seems like everyone around you suddenly is silent? That's how I felt when hubby says, "He has to pee!". Uggh!!
This little peacock showed up at our table! I guess she wanted some of my funnelcake? I tried giving her some, but she didn't seem interested. She stood within a foot from us for a good 20 minutes!
I'll have to share a picture of M in her little outfit she wore to the zoo. It is so cute with little hippos on it. So, I had to try & get a picture of the hippos. They are behind glass, so there is no way to get a terrific picture & today there wasn't a way to get even a decent picture, so this is the best I got. Some strangers head is in my picture :(. I had to step way back because someone's little "cutie" kept leaning on M's stroller & touching her, quite hard, actually. I never did figure out who that little sweetie belonged too!
This picture just cracked me up! I don't know what was wrong with my camera, at this point. All the photos for about a 30 minute time period are all really bright & yellowish, not sure why! The pics before & after are all fine. These guys were behind glass, too, so that could have something to do with it.
Since our children were tiny, I have been taking pictures of them in front of this sign. I think her Mom & Dad thought for sure Grandma had flipped this time, but I wanted a picture of her in front of the sign, so I can continue the tradition. I think it will be fun to compare the M's height with her Mom's height at the same ages. Yes, the scrapper in me already has these pages mapped out in my head, although they are years away! I do not have a picture of Ash at this age in front of the sign. I think I have one of C when she was 2 months old in front of the sign.

I guess that is all the pictures for this entry, since it won't give me the option to add another one, so I will have to make one more entry for my favorite photo of the day!!! It reminds me of hubby more then I can even say!!

We loved our day at St. Louis zoo...very nice zoo! It's hard to believe it's free. I think the animals were more entertaining while you were there, lucky you! That's a great idea to keep track of your child's (or grandchild's) growth on that chart!
