St. L

Sami's Shenanigans

This weekend Andrew and I took a trip to St. Louis! Saturday night was for my college friend's wedding reception.
The food was good. But there were about 400 + people, and the music was super loud, long, and not in English. Oh and we didn't know anyone. So it was kinda a bust. We only got to say hi to the bride for literally 10 seconds.
But Sunday we made a trip to the zoo and the Budweiser brewery for a tour! Both were FREE.

Zoo sign. Luckily it only sprinkled for about 5 minutes the whole time we were there.

TURTLE!! One of the first animals we saw once in the zoo. :) :) :) DZ's LOVE turtles. 

The new baby elephant and it's mommy. Not the best shot of mom...

I was super happy to see the college's mascot...duh. :)


Us at the zoo entrance waterfall. 
Ignore my hair. The weather was humid/windy/rainy/sunny.

After the zoo and some lunch, we headed on over to the Brewery. 
Front of the Budweiser Brewery tour building.

Awwww yeah!

Clock tower and the logo sign.

Clydesdale and the carriage! 

Andrew enjoyed a few free samples of beer. 
He got a little full and didn't have the other two. 
He drank my one and one of his. 
I don't like beer, and was wearing my letters. 

On the way into the zoo there is a park called Turtle Park. 
It has a bunch of turtle statues. So naturally being a Delta Zeta I have to stop and take a picture with one.
Throwing what I know DZ style. :)

Overall I'd say Sunday was our favorite part of the trip. We were gone for 30 hours and 8 of that or more was spend driving to and from St. Louis. 

Next time maybe we can check out the arch closer up-we only saw it while driving. Also maybe see a Cardinals game and check out six flags.
This trip was mostly the budget and time friendly one. :)

Have you ever been to St. Louis?! 
What was your favorite part?
