Omaha's Zoo

Since we were all ready for the day by 8:30 on Monday morning, we headed over to Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. On our way there, I asked Evelyn which animals she wanted to see. Her first pick: the elephants. Now, for those of you who've been to Omaha's zoo, you know how far away the elephants are from the entrance . . . however, Evelyn got her wish. Other highlights of the trip to zoo included feeding the fish, riding the train (of course!), feeding the birds, and watching the bears get their frozen lunch (a frozen block of fruits and vegetables).
Also, for those of you who have visited this zoo with children, you know someone's going to fall and get hurt. Yes, Evelyn was looking for the train, not watching where she was going, and tripped and fell. Poor thing landed flat on her stomach and chest. Thankfully, she walked away with just two scrapes. However, after that fall, we prohibited her from climbing on any rocks - one injury is enough!
Julia fell asleep in the car on the way to the zoo, and she didn't wake up until we got back to the Luster's house. She had no idea that she'd spent the morning at the zoo!
