Spring Break, Part 3

On Wednesday of our break, we decided it was time to get up and out of our pajamas and do something fun.  The weather was nice and there were a couple things we'd wanted to do since we moved to St. Louis.

We got dressed and headed out into a gorgeous day.

Get ready

First stop, the Zoo.  I had not been to the St. Louis Zoo since I was in high school and I didn't remember just how huge it is!  It doesn't seem possible that such a big place exists in the middle of our fine city.

There were so many cool animals to see, and I took about a gatwillion pictures.  I won't bore you with all of them.

Next stop, the Cathedral Basilica.  Can I just say, AMAZING?  It really is an incredible structure.  It's open all day, so the next time you're driving down Lindell and you have 20-30 minutes to pop in and look around, you really should.  It's a beautiful place with a unique part in the history of this city.

By the time we got done being tourists in our city, we were exhausted.  That night we went home and crashed on the couch with a marathon of Parks and Recreation.  Another glorious day on our break!
