On Memorial Day we took London to the Kansas City Zoo for the day since the weather was supposed to be halfway decent. It ended up being a hot but beautiful and mostly Sunny day which made it all the better. The zoo has improved each and every year and it’s one place we are going to spend lots of time this Summer. In the past few years they’ve added a Polar Bear exhibit, Penguin Exhibit, and new Orangutan exhibit, and they have plans for much more in the years to come. This is the first year we purchased a yearly family pass which will pay for itself in two visits. If you plan on spending more than a day at the zoo this year, you definitely want to invest in a Friends of the Zoo membership. Plan on spending some time there as well, we were there 4 hours and only made it through half the zoo. London’s favorite part was the Polar Bear exhibit and she clearly had a good day. The zoo is open year round and only closed on major holidays.
