Our Thursday ended at 11:30 pm and our Friday started at 3:00 am. Good times!
We drove 5 hours to Illinios to suprised Luke’s little brother and dad for their birthday (it’s the same day! How neat is that?!)
Obviously everyone was super suprised when we got here, which was fun! After we talked for a little bit we went to the park to hunt for Pokemon. I caught 2 squirtles and I’m pretty stoked about that. 😁
After visiting with Luke’s family, we dropped our dogs off at my parents’ house, talked to my grandma for a bit, then picked Luke’s brothers up from their house and headed to the zoo!!
It’s been a while since we’ve been to the St. Louis Zoo! Or any zoo for that matter. We’ve tried the Kansas City Zoo a few times but it sucks compared to STL’s.
Anyway, we had a lot of fun! We did A LOT of walking, and by the end of it we were all hot, sweaty, tired, and maybe a tad bit miserable, but still happy. I mean, we saw pretty much everything!
As always, the Penguins were our favorite. They are super playful and pretty friendly. They like to swim right next to the glass where everyone can see and they like to splash people. On particularly fiesty guy completely soaked me! I was pretty greatful though, it was crazy hot!!
Anyway, it’s 10:45 as I type this. I’ve finally showered, and am laying in bed getting ready to sleep. It’s been a fun day, but in ready for it to be over!
I hope you had a fantastic Friday!
