On a day when my husband could use a day to himself at home I put together a picnic and made the boys go with me to the zoo.
We had a great time. I told them to be prepared to smile, because I needed some new pictures for my wall (and for presents). There was no arguing.
It was a lovely 95 degrees, and the zoo was all but empty, so it was super fun to roam around by ourselves. I kept wondering if maybe they were really closed. Occasionally we saw people, but there were a LOT more animals than people at this zoo.
Yes, there are mountain lions (or cougars, or pumas) in Kansas, and I was very close to it. You can see my head shadow.
The boys do not even look annoyed at the delay (me taking another picture).
I have a couple of creative kids. He was playing leap frog with the frog.
And taming the wild toad/frog.
And letting the youngster have a go with my camera. He can only become a photographer if I let him take pictures.

This goat had a different smile. It almost looked human. Can you see it? Look below.
It was a great day at the zoo.
