We're Going to the Zoo..Zoo...Zoo..How 'bout You??

Say "Ahhh!"

Going into the rain forest....

Somewhere in the tropical jungle...

Rich having fun with the kids at the zoo...

Spending some time outside while at the zoo

Lily with a real giraffe! She was in the giraffe class in preschool and giraffes are her favorite! She had never seen a real one before!

Lily hitches a ride on the bronze baby giraffe near the giraffe house at the Henry Doorly Zoo.

The kids are getting ready to see the orangatans and the gorillas!

And they have lots of big cats as well!

Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo is AMAZING! We have been three times in three weeks. Pretty scary, huh? However, it is only a 20 minute drive from our house and we have a military family season pass that was pretty cheap. You don't even have to pay to park! There is this huge dome that is all desert landscape inside...and another building that is the tropical rain forest (my personal favorite). The gorilla house is fantastic and most of the sites are actually inside rather than outside in the elements. Anyhow, we love it and enjoy our time there!
