It's practically impossible to look at a penguin and feel angry.
Joe Moore

Nick's parents came for a short visit over the long weekend. Although Nick had to work on Sunday, I headed over to the Saint Louis Zoo with his parents.

We explored the rest of the zoo in the morning and although it was cold the elephants were enjoying the sunshine!

On Sundays, when the temperature is below 50 degrees the zoo "walks" the penguins. I'd heard it was fun but never actually took the time to go see it - it was worth the trip! I thought that they'd really have to lead them out but the doors of the exhibit and out they walked, er, waddled!

It was hard to take photos with all of the people but you can see the one standing next to the zoo keeper. So cute - how can you not smile at a penguin!
