Last Saturday, my parents and I took baby Jack to the zoo for the first time in St. Louis! It was a hit!
It was a very crowded day at the zoo, but we didn't care. Since I plan on taking Jack there a lot as he grows up because we visit so often, I didn't mind the fact we couldn't see everything. Plus, the zoo is free so it's no problem going multiple times a year.
Here are a few animals that we did see...
The animal that got Jack's undivided attention were the black bears. I think they reminded him of his puppy dog at home, Rooney.
I love the zoo in St. Louis because I went all the time with my family. It gives me great memories that I want Jackson to have too.
For anyone that is looking for a fun way to spend the weekend, I highly recommend the St. Louis Zoo. It's such a fun family experience. In addition to animals, there are fun gift shops, flowers, a train, a carousel, and even beer! Yes, I had a beer at the zoo of course.
