Memorial Day Weekend
We continued our Memorial Day weekend tradition of driving out to the St. Louis area for the Gateway Classic Boomerang Tournament. We drove all day on Friday to arrive in Waterloo, IL. We are so thankful to Chicago Bob and his family for hosting our family year after year. It's so nice to have a home to stay in (and it's a pretty fun place!).
We started our weekend by driving in to St. Louis on Saturday and going to the St. Louis Zoo. What a great zoo! We had to drive around awhile to find a place to park - and then we had to walk a ways to the zoo, but with snacks in hand, we made the hike.
This is a Rhinoceros Hornbill - it has got to be the loudest bird in the world. We were in an aviary dodging a thunderstorm and met these guys. Wow, are they loud!
They had a super cute baby elephant. Turns out she was only about a month old.
