KC Zoo Trip

My good friend Lindsay has a pass to the zoo, which means I can get in free {I know just how to pick my friends ;)} Well yesterday we decided to go, the morning started out rainy and it was supposed to rain that night but the middle of the day was going to be nice and upper 70's  so we went for it.  Okay seriously, we were like the only ones there!  It was soo awesome! I don't think we shared an exhibit with anyone, even the new penguin building.  We got there just in time for the sea lion show (training) and it was really cool, no sea world but defiantly worth it to see! 
The zoo is broken up into different parts Asia, Australia, and Africa (which is a zoo all in it's self...) so we only hit up Asia and Australia but it was still plenty to see. We got up close and personal to quite a few animals.  My favorite was the Orangutan's.  There was some in a cage outside but then there were 3 behind a glass wall.  One was looking out the glass just relaxing,  basically you were face to face with it (minus the glass between you).  There was a dumb glare but if you put your face right up against the glass you could see everything.  Then there was a baby that was playing and wanted us to play with it, no joke.  We would start looking at another orangutan or something and it would tap on the glass until we would look at it.  Then he would hide under is blanket and do the same thing over and over again, it was seriously so funny.  Oh and we were the only ones there playing with them, soo cool! 
Next we rounded the corner and BAM! There were multiple kangaroos just hanging out all over in the path and everything.  Lindsay started to back up slowly to find a zoo keeper (to make sure it was normal that they were out of their exhibit...) I couldn't keep my eyes, or camera off of them.  We had another stare down, for a second I was sure they were going to chase me but they just hopped off instead.  Oh and it is normal for them to be out of their cage, we enter their exhibit and they are free to roam, once again sooo cool!  But don't worry they are afraid of people so they really don't get close to you {or thats what they say...}.   
Oh and Jenson sure loved it... he slept through the entire trip, sorry Hailey someday he will be old enough and you will have a buddy to play with instead of just look at! :) 
So without further ado the pictures, and no most of these are not even zoomed in, thats just how close and personal we got!  Enjoy! (in no particular order.)

 He sure loved the penguins... ;)

 Notice the baby Joey in her pouch! :)
 Looks like this is a gorilla, but nope it's the orangutan just a dark colored one, not orange! (no zoom!)

 I told you, like no one was there...
Thanks Lindsay for letting me tag along! We Love the ZOO!
