Omaha Road Trip – Day 2 (Day)

No trip to Omaha is complete without a visit to their wonderful zoo!

We hit the ground running…there was an employee that had the skin of a snow leopard laying there.  Hudson wanted to pet it, of course:


Our first stop was the aquarium:

Hud was fascinated by this guy cleaning a tank (he is still talking about it days later):


Next stop – giraffes!

I don’t know what was going on here, but this made me laugh!


Now that Harper is a walker – she was itching to get out and show off her skills:

Lunch break! We always pack a lunch and go back to the car to eat it:

Harper loves her shades:

They have a fantastic butterfly exhibit.  When Hud was six months old, we took him and he was fascinated.  Four years later, he is still fascinated:

Harper was a little more timid:

Riding on Daddy’s shoulders is way more fun than the back of the stroller!

This baby seal was only 2 weeks old!

Trent decided that Hud needed to give him a ride:

Hud wanted to go back to the aquarium. It was way more crowded at this point…shoulder to shoulder!

We couldn’t have asked for better weather (80s!)! It was a beautiful day at the zoo!
