Trip to the Zoo – Summer Bucket List Challenge

We finally made it to the zoo a few weeks ago! It’s been SO hot, we didn’t even want to go earlier in the summer. The zoo is always a fun trip for the kids. We purchase the Friends of the Zoo pass every year, so we usually go several times.

The Kansas City Zoo is actually a pretty great zoo now. When Josh and I were kids, the animals were few and far between. They’ve done a lot of work over the last 10 years or so to make it a lot more enjoyable. The most recent additions are Nikita the Polar Bear, who is a HUGE hit with the kids, and the Skyfari ride that just opened this summer.

This was our first trip to the zoo (as a family) since they opened the zoo, so we headed straight for the Skyfari when we got there. It’s like a ski lift ride that goes over the Africa exhibit. You get to see the giraffes and zebras, along with a lot of other (less-exciting) animals. The kids thought it was awesome 😉

It was fairly warm that day, so we did the Skyfari, walked through the second half of Africa, rode the carousel, and then headed home.
