IMG_3934This summer I have Friday’s off work. So yesterday we decided it would be a great day to spend a few hours at the zoo. We got up extra early and got the kids ready to get there right when the zoo opens. The first hour the zoo is open everything that usually costs money is free, such as the children’s petting zoo, the carousel, sting rays, and I believe a few other areas. The train isn’t free but we knew that going there. Our first stop was the petting zoo to see some goats. After that I can’t name all of the animals we seen, except I wanted to see a black mamba and I totally got to see one.

There were a few areas where the animals weren’t out, such as the many of the apes, monkeys, and gorillas. That’s okay, we still seen plenty of animals for one trip. Since the St. Louis Zoo is free to get in and does not cost to see the majority of the animals, it is a perfect place to visit many times during the year. Abby and Alex had a great time as usual. Although this year Abby was a little more vocal about the 30 degree temperature in the puffin and penguin house.

I took the GoPro with us during our visit and put together a little video of our trip to the zoo. The music is by Coldplay – Sky Full Of Stars (Geek Boy’s Jersey Bootleg). Just a cool mix I thought went well with the footage.
