St. Louis Zoo

Saturday it was just too beautiful to stay inside and scrape the popcorn off the ceiling! Instead I loaded my mom and brother up and drove a few hours east to St. Louis. 

We met my sister and brother-in-law who live in Paducah, KY.  They picked up my 92-year-old grandma, who lives in St. Louis and we all met for lunch.  




We were going to eat at Crown Candy Kitchen - a St. Louis icon - but we didn't feel like waiting so I used my Trip Advisor app and found the #12 restaurant - The Fountain on Locust - was about 9 minutes away and on the way to the zoo!  

It was awesome!


Me and my baby sister!

 My grandma and I both had a cup of their secret recipe Dill Pickle Soup - it was so good!  Really!!  Like eating those dill pickle chips - in a creamy soup form!


They are also known for their homemade ice cream and their incredible sundaes!  I just had to try the Almond Joy!

 The interior has this cool 1920's art deco vibe!


After lunch we all headed to the zoo - BTW - the St. Louis is FREE!!!  That's right - FREE!!  If you park along the road, you won't even have to pay to park.




Yes they have live animals too!!


They have this cool sea lion exhibit where you can walk under them as they swim all around you!


It was a perfect day!!

































After the zoo closed, we headed over to the Grand Plaza in front of the Art Museum.  It was a beautiful evening!!


















In the end, I was really glad I took a day to be with my family and enjoy a beautiful day!

Find your Happy Camper Life!
