A jacket is a lifesaver on chillier days (60 degrees F), especially if biking. I barely even took it off the entire time.
When I'm behind the camera, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement of getting the perfect shot. To savour the fun and experience, I left my camera at home and instead brought some notebooks to scribble exciting memories and moment down in. The small one is from the St. Louis art museum gift shop and the big is a recycled notebook/pen set from JJ's visit to Northwestern.

Photography: JJLIONS AND TIGERS AND BEARS. This past Saturday was the first full day of my last college Spring Break and of course, what romantic getaway could we do? A bike trip to the zoo! The St. Louis Zoo is free, which is really nice so we have plenty of lunch money to spend on delish funnel cakes and other obscenely overpriced snacks. Hope you enjoyed this breakdown of how to look cute at the zoo while dressing practically so that your sartorial plumes don't get in the way of your adventures. We had loads of fun guffawing at the penguin gang fight (Gentoos vs Emperors '12) and watching a snake molt. SB2012 - so it begins. Yes we also finished the Lord of the Rings trilogy this week! What a marathon.
Readers - what would you wear to the zoo?
