This past weekend, I made a visit up to my hometown of St. Louis. The drive from Nashville is *slightly* more interesting than it was from Tulsa, as this time I get to switch highways and everything! ;)
Shortly after I arrived on Friday evening, I joined my mom and her friend Karen for a concert in the zoo. The Saint Louis Zoo is one of my favorite places ever. I even had my wedding reception there.
The band was awesome and I enjoyed creepily taking pictures of the people dancing.
This guy in particular was really getting down. He was so fun to watch!
There was a peahen strutting around as well. Lots of us were enjoying getting pictures of her...
Then she looked right at me! (Of course, I guess bird vision is different so I'm not sure whether she was actually SEEING me...)
I snuck away for a bit to visit the sea lions.
My cute mommy and her cute friend! It was a great time.
My Pi at Starbucks the next morning. Isn't he magical?
This is Neville, the kitten Ryan and I got my mom for Christmas. He's growing so quickly!
On Saturday night, we went to my aunt's house to celebrate my cousin's college graduation. Here's the scholar pondering cake.
I had a great time visiting my family and confusing my mom with my obsession with picture-taking. ("WHY are you taking a picture of that?!" It's an art, mom....) ;)
