We spent a lot of time at the zoo, because we had time to kill when we went to St. Louis for gymnastics (1 1/2 hours each way). It is free, and it is a pretty nice zoo.
Some of the days it was overcast and cooler. Those were nice days and the animals were moving around.
It was fun to see the hippos under water.
Once in a while we made the mistake of going out in high humidity and hundred degree weather. Notice the dripping sweat on their faces - even in the shade. (you can click on the picture to make it bigger)
So, it felt really nice to have the dinosaurs spit water on you!
It also felt good to run through the water in the children's area.
It made them nice and cool.
We took our cousins to the zoo, and they liked it too.
It was fun to pet the goats and guinea pigs in the children's zoo.
The playground was fun and full of neat things.
All in all we would recommend this zoo to everyone!
