St. Louis Zoo

Well it took us forever to get these pictures but here they are at last!! We spent Memorial day in St. Louis with Grandma and Grandpa Riek (not to mention Maxx). On Saturday we went to the zoo.

At the hippo tank Ryan seemed more interested in the fish then hippos.


Of course it wouldn't be a trip to the zoo without a picture at the snake. This is about as close as Ryan was willing to get. He's kind of scared of the snake.

Raja the elephant in fine form.

The train (needless to say) was a huge hit.


Stop bugging me daddy!!!

Petting the goats.

Hey that's my bench!!!

There are a couple of really cool tunnel slides in a nice play area for the kiddos.


The people running this carousel are not exactly quick. We sat on the zebra for almost 10 minutes before it finally started. The funny part however is that it started pouring rain while we were waiting for the carousel to start. Looks like Ryan and I found a good spot to wait out the rain. By the time we got off the rain had quit.

After the carousel with finished the day at the zoo by what else? A trip to Ted Drew's. For those of you who aren't familair with them it is a legendary custard shop on Route 66 not too far from the zoo. SUPER YUMMY!!!!!

I'm with Ryan- that snake looks too real. Ugh! The zoo looks awesome, I hope we can make a group trip sometime in the future.
