Today, Harrison and I went to the zoo (along with everyone’s cousin and their dog). It happened to be our “zoo day”. After reading an article in the last newsletter from Harrison’s school, David and I decided we needed to sit down and come up with a summer schedule for Harrison. We were already thinking of making a schedule, but reading the article was a friendly reminder to get on it, ‘yo. No, don’t do that. Yeah, the “‘yo'” may have been a bit much.
I’ll write another post about Harrison’s summer schedule, but today is about Zoo Day. We decided every Wednesday will be a day for us to go to the zoo. The St. Louis Zoo is (amazingly) free, but we also received a membership this past Christmas. That gives us even more incentive to go. Who doesn’t love free train rides and admission to the Children’s Zoo, to name a few perks. There are plenty of indoor exhibits, too, so we will not be deterred by rain or heat. This trip, we covered: River’s Edge, The Insectarium, and The Children’s Zoo. Not so say we won’t revisit. Honestly, there weren’t many animals out in River’s Edge. We basically saw a hyena and the Asian elephants. Good thing we will be back.
You may have already seen these pictures, but here is a little recap:
We planned on riding the train, but I waited until we were close to leaving (mid-afternoon), and that was a mistake! The lines were ridiculously long. Fortunately, Harrison was okay with waiting until next time. I will make sure to do that first thing. I’m sure someone will remind me if I forget, though.
