We started out our day with spending 50 cents to make a cool 1 cent :p (which was almost lost at the telescopes by the giraffes…tragedy! drama!)
After this we were off to see the animals! Polar bears, penguins, gorillas, and lions topped the list of Abigail favorites.
The KC Zoo has lots of fun little playgrounds within it so Abigail was able to expend lots and lots of built up sitting in the car energy- on top of walking the entire day! She rocked it.
…..and my family sitting on fake hippos. (I’m sure they’ll be thrilled I included this photo! lol)
There was a hilarious moment when Abigail rode the carousel the first time with Aunt Clairen- we all thought she had chosen to ride on a tick. Turns out it was a ladybug, but it looked hilarious with her sitting on it. A tiger the second time around was a much more traditional choice. And my brother sitting on a bright pink flamingo beside her was equally fabulous.
After the zoo we enjoyed dinner at The Cheesecake Factory on the Plaza and then we were able to stop in at Grandpa Monty and Grandma Jenny’s house for a quick hello before our 2+ hour drive home. It was a perfect way to end our day! (Oh, and did I mention the weather??? It couldn’t have been better!)
