visiting the zoo

We visited the St. Louis Zoo yestarday. Hubby had the day off and we thought we had better go before it gets too cold. Going during the week is the thing to do. We saw the entire zoo and we did it as slowly as we wanted. It did rain a little, but it didn't dampen our spirits. At one point it did pour kind of hard and we took shelter under a fake rock over hang and watched the above elephant play in the ran for some time. It was so nice observing God's creatures and spending time with each other. We had a great time!
Just an update: Still no baby. She is dialated to 2 and shes "afaced" whatever that means. Yet, her doctor doesn't want to admit her until her contractions are stronger. I picked today... so we'll see. My husband has tomarrow.

Effaced means her cervix is getting thinner, which is a good sign. :)
I love the St. Louis zoo! And visiting St. Louis! It's only 3 hours away from us..are you close to there? Glad you had a good time!

My guess is that she won't have the baby to closer to her due date. Say two weeks from today.

Leigha- thanks for the info. I'm learning. We try to go every summer since we love animals. Well, the way my hubby drives it takes us a little under 2 hours with good traffic. We are kind of in the middle of everything.
Ginnyberry- you may be right.
Connie- Thanks for your prayers.

I think the important thing is that the baby be safely born. That is what is important. I'm glad that all is well so far.

You are a good aunt.
