Zoo Time!

Today Gabbie and I went to the St. Louis Zoo with Grandma. It was a beautiful day outside and we had a lot of fun. Gabbie was so good and stayed in her stroller the whole time except for the few times Grandma took her out to get a closer look at the animals. She really was great! She actually fell asleep in her stroller when we were leaving which she hasn't done for a long time. She took a huge 20 minute nap in the car and was ready for the rest of the day which made for a crabby Gabbie but we managed!

Before the zoo waiting for Grandma!

Gabbie liked the penguins. At one point they started splashing water at Gabbie and Grandma and they both ended up wet. Gabbie then decided the penguins were okay but she was ready to leave. She sure likes to talk about the penguins going boom and the water on her hair and maw maw's face though.

Gabbie sitting on Grandma's lap on the train. This was her first choo choo ride. She liked it but was so tired at this point.

Wiped out on the way home.

Sounds like a lot of fun. Looks like she enjoyed it too.

Those 20 minute naps are almost worse than the no naps!Just enough to make them awake, but not rested.

Love the stuffed animal story. Sounds all too familiar!
