Omaha Zoo

We had such a fabulous time at the Omaha Zoo last spring that Ben scheduled another meeting in Omaha on this trip.  We arrived a day early and spent a much anticipated day exploring the zoo again!  Seriously…if your travels ever take you to, or through, or near Omaha, schedule a day to spend at this zoo!

The Kookaburra – I sang the Patch the Pirate song of the kookaburra to him.  He seemed unimpressed.  Elaine seems like part mountain goat sometimes…and Grandpa would be glad to know she spent a lot of time observing all the snakes!

In the Dessert Dome!

In Kingdoms of the Night.  I asked them to stand by the stalagtites and stalacmites.  In the process, Nehemiah ended up tripping (or getting pushed…not sure which) and hit his head on the rough rocks.  He has a purple-green knot on his forehead with a gash to show for it! 

Omaha Zoo
The sloth.  I thought he was cool.  Ben just did a Christian School chapel on slothfulness.  He found that the Hebrew word for sloth and sluggard really just mean lazy.  When they were translated to English, the metaphor was applied, because the sloth is himself lazy!  The old English word is sloth (long vowel) and just means slow.

Omaha Zoo
In Lied Jungle.  There are vines all over that the kids love to hand and swing from!  (No idea how the kid in the black jacket ended up in my picture, by the way).

The otters were pretty active.

This frog was… orange!

The baby orangutan.  We saw him as a brand new baby last spring.  He was a little more active this time!  Mom…not so much.  She seemed annoyed with his antics!  (I can relate sometimes!)

This peacock would not leave me alone.  So I took his picture.

A little blurry, but I loved walking behind my kiddos enjoying this day with Daddy!
