Off to the Kansas City zoo with Shelley and her family. It is huge. My favorite part is the long gondola ride to view zebras and giraffe and other African animals. I love sky rides, always have. Ask to go on it repeatedly. My request is declined by the others.
Eat at a Steak and Shake on the way home. It is at the request of Shelley's teenaged daughter. Always listen to teenagers. The experience is really bad food cooked in a heavenly way. Sooooo good.
That night we visit Shelley's brother at his sod farm. He shows is his vegetables and I get to tool around his farm riding a gater (that's a farm vehicle, son.)
We finish the night visiting Shelley's mother, who is wearing a Batman mumu. We talk Doctor Who and all the rock concerts she has been to.
Such a lovely day. I think it was my favorite.
