St Louis (part 1)

Ever since we moved to KC 9 years ago we’ve heard what a great family trip destination St Louis is. So we finally took a few days over Spring Break this year to check it out!

Their zoo is free!! Woohoo!! First stop: carousel (cause it’s free the first hour the zoo is open too!)

Berkley’s very favorite animal is the penguin. KC zoo got penguins the summer we moved, so we haven’t gotten to see them. Lucky for her, they have PENGUINS!

Then we headed to Fitz restaurant. On the weekends they bottle their drinks there and you can watch, but we missed that during the week. This was probably top three things we did!

Root Beer Floats were a hit!
