So, since it seems like I am leaving the great city of St. Louis, I realized that I need to get working on my 101 Things To Do In the Lou list! I've slowly been knocking some of the items off, but I haven't done a very good job of blogging about it. Let's hope I can check at least half of the items off before we go.
The Saint Louis Zoo penguins. Check! We did this last winter, in fact, and their enclosure was great! It really allowed us to get up close with the little guys. I'm sad to say that right now they are doing some renovations and you can't visit the penguins, but if you get the chance, it is totally worth it! Joel had to keep me from stealing a penguin or a puffin and taking him home.
Drive down the river road in the fall and stop
at Eckert’s Orchards in Grafton to pick your own apples. This was an easy one! Growing up in Indiana, I loved picking (insert fruit here) anything with my parents, so we made sure to make this a stop. We went to the one in Belleville, though, because they had a country store and restaurant, with the bets fried pickles I have ever had. Yum, yum!
