We took the kids to the Kansas City Zoo today. We thought it was going to be cool but it ended up being so hot. The kids were amazed by the elephants and giant turtles. Nate is in love with seals/sea lions. So we watched a sea lion show. Then we proceeded to walk to Africa….and it literally felt like we walked to africa. That is the biggest zoo I have ever been in. I felt like I need Bear Grills from Man v. Wild with me to find some water so I didn’t die of dehydration. The Africa section is beautiful and literally feels like you are in africa with probably a little more greenery and coke machines. I’m used to the Lincoln Park Zoo in downtown Chicago where everything is nice and compact. Needless to say after walking to Africa and back we were dripping in sweat and done with the zoo. We will need to make another trip so we can see Australia. It was a fun family day and we will have to do it again.
