#TravelTuesday - Put Me in the Zoo

Went to the zoo the other day. Beautiful fall weather in central Kansas currently, so we took advantage of the 'warm and sunny' and did our dayhike of 3 miles (!) at the Sedgwick County Zoo.

Saw the lion exhibit. The king was out, roaring a bit. Which was unusual. Normally he's just sleeping and sunning himself. He might have had a hairball, come to think of it.

Gorillas are always interesting. Caught them at feeding time. Boy, are they stingy. Young ape comes running for food, older brother chases him off. lol.

Elephants were playing, too. Tigers were roaming. Wolves were active. Prairie dogs were doing their silly ol' thing. 

A good day was had by all.

If you go, the zoo has lighted displays in the evenings and I hear  they're very pretty. Lots of room to roam as well. Takes about 2 hours to see the whole thing. If you keep moving.

Speaking of displays, if you're in the Wichita area and want another lightshow, our Botanica has illuminations that are just lovely. Well worth it.

Another holiday tradition is driving around looking at the Christmas lights. A few homes around town do it up right and put their light show to music, airing it on a low-frequency radio station. Fun times.

Of course, this week is Thanskgiving, so we'll be doing turkey and ham (but not in huge portions) with family. Then Sunday we begin the Advent Season. Turn on the Christmas music...what? you're listening to it already? Well, okay.

And then we wrap up the holidays with our annual Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at church. What a wonderful time of year we're entering into. Enjoying every minute. 

What are some of the autumn / winter activities and traditions you are looking forward to?
