Fun at the zoo

When my sister, Kate told me that we were going to the zoo during our visit, at first I was a little perplexed. Won't it be way too cold in Nebraska/Iowa in March? She assured me that this was one of the best zoos in the country and there were lots of things to do inside. OK, if you say so!

Well, she was right! Our time at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo was very well spent and we all had a blast. Hands down, Addie's favorite was the monkeys in the Lied Jungle. But really, how could she choose?

The Desert Dome was amazing, but a little stinky.


The orangutans were beautiful and so very close.

This gorilla was unbelievably gorgeous... until he decided to vomit right next to the glass... and eat it.

Emie was not amused.

Addie loved this monkey, who stole the show with his whoops and swings.

She wanted to swing and dance just like him.

Awesome Emie joined right in.


Mommy is looking (ahem) quite preggers.


Then it was onto the Scott Aquarium, where Addie thought she met all the characters from Finding Nemo.

Mommy loved the starfish and the jellies.


We only spent about three hours there and saw just a fraction of what this incredible zoo has to offer. If you're ever in the area, we highly recommend it. Just beware of the regurgitating gorillas!

Aunt Kate's favorite moment at the zoo:

Kate: Hey Em, look at this lizard.

The picture of you and Addie in the cave might be one of my absolute faves... Miss you like crazy!!!
