A few weeks ago, we stopped by the St. Louis Zoo for the express purpose of viewing the Sea Lion Show. Turkey had been when he was a baby, but obviously couldn’t remember it, and the rest of the children had never been at all, so this was quite a treat for them–Ladybug could hardly wait for it to begin!
It was a big hit, even though they weren’t sure what to do when the sea lions splashed us (we were lucky enough to get seats in the front row!). They loved all the funny tricks, especially *my* favorite part, when the sea lions demonstrate the difference between themselves and seals (very funny!). Moose especially liked when they threw frisbees into the crowd, which was an addition to the show from the last time we went.
After the show, we took a ride around the zoo on the Zooline Railroad. Turkey and Bunny were very excited, because they got their own seat together, instead of having to sit with Daddy and Mommy.
Even Moose warmed up to the train–his last experience was a bit negative, because he didn’t like the tunnels, but this time we made a point to avoid the stops around the tunnels, and by the end of the trip, he managed to relax and enjoy the ride.
