Zoo Day

I love the STL Zoo!!! It's a fun place and is such a special place for us as a family. (Mark proposed there) The best part about it is it's FREE. Yup, free! Mark's mom always purchases the membership for me for my b-day and it's a gift that gives all year round. ;) This morning we loaded up and headed to the zoo with Kelley and "lolo" (Wyatt's name for Caroline). I love that we have a car that we can all fit in comfortably! It's always fun to ride together. The zoo just opened a new exhibit area for the sea lions. It is amazing!! There is an underground tunnel and everything. Wyatt thought it was so neat.

Wyatt looks upset in this picture but I promise he isn't. He is finally saying "cheeeese" and looking at the camera. Guess we will have to work on the smile part now. ;) The monkeys were really active too...Kelley got a picture of Wyatt acting like a money.

Wyatt is BIG into penguins right now. He ran all the way to the penguin spot. The STL zoo's penguins are the best. They are so up close and personal...

We enjoyed lunch at the zoo and got ready to head home before the heat came. Wyatt was REALLY upset about really upset...

He left kicking and screaming. He stopped and sat down on the bridge to the parking lot. He was so mad!

I thought for sure he would be so tired when we got in the car. He continued to throw the fit for about 25 mins. and finally fell asleep, that was at 1:30...he is still sleeping at 4:40. Pretty sure I am going to wake him so we all sleep tonight!
What a great day to spend with friends. My b-day is this weekend and I told Mark I wanted to make it to the zoo at some point. He has to see how much Wyatt loves it.
P.S. Sloane went with us and was an angel. She slept in the stroller the entire time. ;)
