    Kansas City Zoo

    Normally when we make a trip to the zoo we head to St. Louis. It’s the zoo I always went to growing up, it’s big without being too big, and it’s free.

As it turns out our procrastination paid off and we just happened to have one last weekend where it was 70 and sunny. We seized the opportunity and off to the St. Louis Zoo we went. Oh, look it’s a monkey. Wait, what is he doing….. Just enjoying a little snack that he pulled from his rear end! That’s right.…
