Zoo fun with friends

The weather has been so nice here this week that we have actually been able to get outdoors. What a nice change from having to find indoor activities. And, what better way to enjoy the nice weather than to visit the Kansas City Zoo. We have been to the zoo several times, but it never gets old. Cole would go daily if we would let him. We loaded up in Dani's car and headed down there with her and Kaden.

Heading into the zoo. I didn't get a picture, but the polar plunge finally opened. It was so neat to get up close and personal with the big bear.

You can also get pretty close to the kangaroos too. Watching them hop just fascinates me.

Cole and Kaden busting out some dance moves. These two are quite the characters. ;-)

Mommy and Cole waiting for the train. Dani has a membership to the zoo so we got to ride the trains, tram and carousel for free! Thanks for sharing with us, Dani!

Cole and Kaden riding together. My lil' guy is getting big enough to sit without me.

We even had the pleasure of riding a camel. Okay, maybe it wasn't a pleasure, but Cole had been begging to do it. Unfortunately, he is not big enough to ride alone, so alas, I got to enjoy the bumpy, stinky ride too. :-) Kaden was on the front, and us in the back.

Enjoying the world's largest and MESSIEST popsicle ever. Cole and Kaden were both stained red. Note to self: no more jolly rancher popsicles at the zoo!

Here they are giving a "toast" with their popsicles. Cheers!

What a fun day we had at the zoo. It was great spending time with Cole as well as a great friend. Dani and I can both talk non-stop so that makes it fun!

Preschool starts Tuesday so I will post Cole's first day of school picture after that!
