going to the zoo & pin it winner!

One of the things I love about St. Louis is the zoo. And - it's - free
Totally free. You can even pack your lunch and make it free-free by not having to buy any food or pay $7 for water. OK, I don't think it's $7, but you get the point.
The thing that I love about going to the zoo is that it's never the same thing. Animals are kind of like children, in that they're never doing the same thing. 
{this is me and Simon, in elephant form}

Sometimes they're sleeping and you don't even get to see them, sometimes they're putting on a show, sometimes they're taking a bath or eating, sometimes they're fighting, sometimes they're just sitting there. Sometimes they're acting like monkeys and going nuts.
We recently took my brother-in law and his wife to the zoo on their super busy weekend here with us. In true Jacobs {maiden name} form, their plane barely landed, and we were off to the zoo.
 I'm so glad we went though. It was one of those rare times that the elephants were putting on a show.
 It was my first time seeing this little babe.
And one of the few times I've ever seen an elephant wade into the water and blow water from its trunk.

And now the winner of the $20 gift card to What the Hart Likes:
Congratulations Carol!
