Steven goes to the zoo (part 1)

The weather has been so nice here the past week, and we are trying to take advantage of it. We were on our way to Hermann Park to enjoy a beautiful Saturday but then decided to go to the zoo when we saw the entrance. It was a little busy since they were having a Halloween event but we still had fun with Daddy. It was Steven's first time at the zoo so we spent most of our time in the children's zoo section. Can you see the eagle in the left corner? I know it looks fake but that's the real deal.
In an eagle's nest.

Can you see the otter's head sticking out of the water? Charlton and I thought this exhibit was pretty cool because you could see them swimming around under water. Steven wasn't sure what he was supposed to be looking at despite all our pointing.

This goat thought he could avoid the kids by lounging under a bench, but Steven was still determined to pet him.

This exhibit had tunnels on the inside to lead to these pods on the outside. I was waiting to take the picture but I wish that I could have seen Charlton tunneling through them to put Steven in the top (the tunnels aren't that big).

Alas, another failed attempt to get a picture with mom who played photographer the rest of the time. This is the best one we got.

THAT'S why it was so crowded at the park on Saturday. We were at Hermann Park having a picnic with Hilary's high school choir group. Had the hardest time finding parking.
