Wild Weekend

I'm just now getting to posting about it, but I had a pretty exciting weekend. On Friday, I flew to Orlando for work.

Tailgate time! {note: I discovered that I was standing on a fire ant hill while taking this photo OUCH!}
It was hot and humid in the sunshine state. We got up super early to set up for the tailgate. The turnout was great and Mizzou won the game. It was a pretty quick trip and by Saturday evening we were on a plane back to St. Louis. Our flights were full of families with kids coming and going from Disney World. They were all so happy and excited. It was great and definitely made me super excited to make that trip with Ryleigh someday.

Saturday night Ron and Ryleigh picked me up at the airport and we spent the night in St. Louis. Ron's cousin, Cary, and her family were in town so we wanted to visit with them. We met them at the Saint Louis Zoo on Sunday morning and had a GREAT day. The zoo is so nice and big and free.
ready for her cousins
waiting for the sea lion show to start. 
Ryleigh got pretty excited seeing these guys during the show.

The zoo was decorated for fall. Ryleigh kept pointing to all the pumpkins saying, "ball."

she finally fell asleep for a little nap
the zookeeper came out to feed the penguins and knew all their names. 

It was great to spend the day with the Cox family. We hadn't really intended to stay all day, but we just had so much fun. The weather was perfect. Can't wait for our next visit!
