Zoo Pals

Our trip to the Omaha Zoo was so much fun! It is definitely one of the best zoos in the nation. We love it so much that we renewed our membership while we were there.

Taking the kids there by myself is no longer an option. I can't strap them in the stroller anymore (and even if I could, I wouldn't be able to push it--they're huge!) and they need to hold hands with someone or they will just run away. Yesterday I went with Mary and the kids she watches. The youngest, that is usually in the pictures with Eva, was sick. So, Julie (age 13) got to come with us since we had an extra seat. Here they are in the Lied Jungle. I can't get over how good my kids were. It was like a dream day for me. They behaved. They ate their lunch. They didn't flop out or run away. They were totally manageable and made me remember that life is good and maybe we can do stuff like this more often. I'm not so naive to think that I can take them without some helpers to distract them from each other---but I know it can be done!

The penguins were a favorite exhibit again.Eva was fearless with the gorillas. She loved them!

I couldn't get Caleb to pose for any other pictures but Eva was more than willing to climb on the back of the gorilla statue. We have some fun Spring Break memories. We're going to try and do some Lincoln Safari activities with them tomorrow. Today Mommy's feet need a break.


  1. Eva looks so cute climbing that gorilla statue. Looks like a fun trip. You reminded me that I need to go to the zoo one more time before my membership expires.

  2. The Omaha Zoo ROCKS! We love it there, and glad you had the chance to visit before summer hits. They look like they are having a marvelous time.
