Rolling Into Salina by Kinley
It's me again, Kinley. It's been almost a week since I "rolled" into Salina and had an adventure. But there's just been no time to write! I've been busy, busy, busy perfecting my somersaults and working on my sprinting. I say "Set!" and my Mommy and Daddy say, "Go!" I am super fast. My Grandma says I get that from my Mommy.
Anyway, I figured I'd better get this story told before the weekend rolled around again, and I had more adventures to report. Last Saturday, my Mom and Dad had some business to take care of in Salina. I had some business of my own. I needed to entertain Grandma and Grandpa.
They seem to like zoos. I really like animals. I had the perfect solution: Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure.
I was ready to pay my own way. But bonus! I was free. Grandma and Grandpa weren't old enough to get the senior discount. Grandma was glad. Grandpa was hoping for the discount.
Oh well! I showed off some of my other skills by identifying the eyes, nose and mouth on a turtle statue. It's pretty easy to impress the grandparents, I am finding out.
Grandpa got me some fish food for a quarter, and we watched them fight over the food. I showed my Grandma how fish make a funny face.
The turtles weren't the only tired creatures at the zoo. The orangutans didn't want to come and play either. Grandma had to find me a picture from another trip so I could see what they looked like. One guy just wanted to lay beneath a cardboard box. He wouldn't even wake up to say "Hi!" to Grandpa and me. Can you believe it?
It was getting really hot, so Mommy and Daddy didn't meet us at the zoo this time. After we cooled off and had some lunch, we went to the mall. I guess Grandma and Grandpa weren't done seeing me with the animals because I got to play with some animals there, too.
Until next time,
