On Thursday, an absolutely gorgeous day in Kansas City, Erin, Samantha, Ryan, and I spent the day at the zoo. The morning started out cloudy, and in the afternoon, the sun broke through and we had blue sky. It was an unusually cooler day in KC, not the normal 100 degree temps, so we opted to spend the day outside. We saw lots of animals... okay, so what else would you expect from a zoo? I mean we saw lots of unusual animals, and Ryan was excited about a bird, and Samantha exclaimed, "Look! A chipmunk!" Well, I guess they're not hard to please, although we could have saved ourselves a bunch of walking but just going out to the backyard to find birds and chipmunks!

After 10 minutes and 20 shots, I finally got a picture of his head. Patience paid off!
