    The Zoo 2007

    We LOVE the zoo. Omaha has a really, really great place in the Henry Dorly Zoo. We think so, so much that we have family membership, and we make good use of it. It's nice to be able to have somewhere fun to go that's "Free" for us to go at any time, and when people come into town it's our favorite place to go (or to send them to on their own, if say, the CWS is in town, haha...hey I DID get a refund for that class, by the way, which is part of why I'm back to singing their praises)...

    So we've gone several times this year, both with Barbie and Rowan for play dates, and for family days out with Daddy on the weekends. The kids both love the Shark Tunnel in the Aquarium, and all the fish, for that matter. Samantha and Daddy love to watch the penguins. Samantha is also obsessed with the alligator in "Kingdoms of the Night" who is missing a foot. Don't ask why, no one knows. Jackson loves the long walk between each area because he is a stroller-lovin' kid, and he thinks wind is like candy, constantly licking at it as we stroll along. Priceless!

    Here are some great zoo pics from our most recent outing...

    It's nice to live in a city where we can just pick up and go do fun things like that. Columbus was such a barren, uneventful, fun-less crap hole, that I don't think I'll EVER take for granted living in a city that has such great summer days to offer in just a few minutes' driving time.

    How fun! How nice! I was looking at the pictures when I suddenly realized that Samantha's baby fat is starting to go away! Her arms and legs have thinned out and so has her pretty little face! She is growing so much and so fast! You really have the most beautiful children - someday when they are in their teens you are going to be SO stressed! =)'
