Hi everyone =) I am back from my trip to St. Louis, and I had a lovely time! I feel like I've been a horrible blogger this summer, but I've just been extremely busy. Maybe things will slow down a little now that I'm home. St. Louis was ridiculously hot (well above a hundred degrees most days) so Aunt Carolyn and I went book shopping, ate good food, hung out at coffee shops, and watched lots of movies for the first few days. Thankfully, it did rain some towards the last part of my visit, so we did get to visit the zoo and the botanical gardens. We also went to the Muny to see Aladdin, which was a ton of fun. I never knew genies were so hilarious :)
My favorite day was definitely the one we spent at the zoo and the botanical gardens. For future reference (if you ever happen to be in St. Louis) the botanical gardens are complete amazingness and gorgeousness.
The current theme at the gardens revolves around Japanese lanterns and art. This is a dragon made entirely from string and china plates and cups. So. Cool.
|I'm also rather fond of flamingos.|
|And toucans :)|
