Last week Maggie had another follow-up with the Rhuematologist in St. Louis. It's been challenging getting both girls to patiently wait through a couple of doctors in tiny waiting rooms and an even small exam room. This time I suggested to James that maybe he go with Maggie to the Dr (hehe) and drop Kayley and I off at the Zoo for a couple hours. He could swing back by and spend some time at the zoo and make the day a little more fun for at least 1/2 of the kiddos. It worked like a charm! Kayley and I rode the train around and around in circles, she even got to say "All Aboard!" as the "guest conductor!"
It was freezing cold and we were shocked to find snow on the ground when we got there. Silly as we are, we didn't have COATS! The lady in the train booth offered Kayley her fleecy jacket and we would've been foolish to say no. We returned it to her about 2 hours later when it warmed up, we were so glad! She was SO sweet!
The St. Louis Zoo was incredible.
While it is free to get in, everything inside costs money.
We bought wrist bands that allowed us into everything...
Here Kayley is outside of the Insectatorium.
The butterfly pavilion was so amazing.
The new Sea Otter tunnel! Very cool!
