Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo

We made it to the zoo this morning. We got to see the Big Cats exhibit, the Monkey, Orangutan and Gorilla exhibit, Madagascar room, Biodome, Rhinos, Sea Lions, and a few other interesting exhibits.

We rode the SkyFari gondola and the boys LOVED it. I don't like being up so high in an open ride like that, but I made it! It was really fun to see the zoo from up high, even though my heart was in my throat the whole time! Benjamin kept trying to stand up and wiggled the whole time. It was...nerve wracking. Yes. I'll leave it at that.

We also rode the train. If you know Benjamin, you'd know we would NEVER be allowed to skip riding the train. It was a real steam engine, too, so even Anthony was impressed. The train stopped once to let off some of its steam and the boys were wide-eyed at all the steam coming out from the bottom of the engine.

As we were leaving, it began to rain. We grabbed lunch at McDonald's and came back to the hotel to eat and rest. We'll leave in a few minutes for Anthony's clinic appointment.
