We've established a routine for our mid-week outing......Farmer's Market downtown and then off to the zoo. Kids don't nap until we hit the car after a long visit with the animals. 20 minutes of snoozing on the way home and then dinner/bath/play with Dad......early bedtime! Wednesdays are busy and I love it.
Last week took us back to "Australia". We'll alternate each week, as the zoo is split in half. And, why do we love the zoo so much? Wide open trails to walk......kids learning and looking at everything......always something new to find.
Lots of fun things to find at the Discovery Barn.
Tree house playground....
The Koi Pond has become a favorite spot.
Carter's reaching out here for more fish food.
Baby turtle! He was no bigger than a plum.
Snakes! We see a ton of snakes each time we visit.....in natural settings.....not behind glass. A little unnerving.
The kangaroos are cage-less.
Let's hope their signs are enough!
KC Zoo Live.....a quirky little show with live animals. The announcer was really fun.
Carter and Lainey are talking to Jack here, on the "secret sender".
A Sea World-type sea lion show. Very impressive!
Little ones loved it.
