The day after Easter we all went to the St. Louis Zoo. It started raining on our way up to the zoo, and we got rained on at first. It was only about 60°F, so it was kind of cold, too. Fortunately, the rain stopped after about 45 minutes, and it actually wasn't too bad. It was much better than if it had been sunny and hot!

The giraffes and elephants are my favorite animals to see at the zoo:
Chandra got quite the workout pushing my wheelchair around the zoo. It's not even very hilly, but it doesn't take much of an incline to give your quads and glutes a workout! Kimball and Rebecah loved taking turns pushing Christian in the stroller:

One of the best parts of Annette's family visiting was meeting my newest niece, Eden (I'd only seen her via Skype prior to this). Edie is such a sweet little thing, and she's so good! Annette said that Edie was perfect on the drive, and cried a total of maybe 10 minutes on the 30+ hour round-trip drive to MO and back home to NY. [And let's just pretend that I hadn't gotten rained on and/or I was wearing makeup in the following pictures!]

What a nice family trip to see the zoo. I like giraffes and elephants too. It looked just like April lol. The little baby is so cute. Love the red hair too. Beautiful family
