Attention! Very long post. Almost 20 pics.
I'm very sorry about how late this is in coming. We have really, been trying since Tuesday. Reason being, we got back about 10:00 Monday night. But anyway, to get on with the post.
On Easter, (after church) we drove down to Nanna's. Really Marie, you leave out all the interesting details! Well, we had an Easter egg hunt and I won. Also, WE GOT FROZEN!!!!!! We've watched it twice now.
Anyway, the next morning ( to early) we drove down to the zoo in Omaha. Here we are near the front.
First we went to the Lied Jungle. That place is AMAZING and I LOVE taking pics there.
Next we went to the butterfly pavilion. That was probably my favorite place. No butterflies landed on me.
My favorite place was most likely the aquarium. The Japanese what-ever-it-was-called-crab (middle picture on the bottom line) freaked me out, but I LOVED the jellyfish (forth picture on the second till last line).
At the aquarium gift shop we bought this "sea globe" as Libby calls it. Well, we can't exactly call it a snow globe!
After a excellent meal we went to the Desert Dome. My favorite animal there was the Coati (second till last picture).
Kingdoms of the Night lurks in the basement of the Desert Dome. It was really creepy, but a fun kind of creepy. Excuse the few pictures. The lighting was horrible down there.
We enjoyed ourselves at the zoo's gift shop. Libby occupied herself looking at a book about sea lions while I bought some memorabilia. It was my deepest woe that I didn't get to see the sea lion training but, at the time of it, we were otherwise occupied.
After going a movie about lemurs, Marie and I went to Gorilla Valley. The gorillas were really cool although they didn't do much besides sleep and sit. There were other thing besides gorillas there too.
Expedition Madagascar was the next place we went. Finally we get to see these "famous" lemurs. There was also an Aye-Aye there but I couldn't see it because the Aye-Aye was quote "sensitive to light". So it was pitch black? Well, almost. Ugh.
On our way to Bear Canyon we looked over the side of the bridge and this is what we beheld. For a translation, we saw some carp over the side of a bridge. Isn't that fascinating?
Most of the bears were sleeping. The one you see that isn't sleeping is the Sun Bear.
It being close by, we decided to go to the Cat Complex after that. Like at Bear Canyon, most animals here were sleeping. I don't see why not! I felt like sinking down in a patch of shade and going to sleep myself. It was so hot!
Well, right before we left, we all explored the Orangutan Forrest. By the way, the two snakes you see, they were HUGE! I mean, I could barely believe that that size of a snake would exist but, there it was.
After leaving the zoo, we had dinner at Cracker Barrel which is by the way, is my favorite restaurant.
A day or so later, while Libby was reading, I came in with special news. "Libby." "Hm." "Libby." "Uh huh." "Libby!" "What is it?" "There's a letter for Chrissa for you." "Really? You're kidding right?" said Libby, paying attention at last.
For an answer, I simply held out my purse.
We very much enjoyed getting letters from our cousins, Chrissa and Elizabeth and of course, going to the zoo.
Have you ever been to the Zoo?
Do you enjoy getting mail?
