We always knew that the Omaha Zoo was fabulous, but the last several
years it has been #1 or #2 in the United States, and also in the world!
One of the first stops was the Tropical Rain Forest area.
The standard joke in our family .......for years......that Isaac and Joshua have heard about
is how Joe will need to rescue them from the monkeys that will attempt
to carry them off. Ha Ha!
Monkey Rescue #1 ! Whew! Joshua is saved!
Another monkey rescue!
Thank goodness both boys are safe and sound!
Now that that craziness is over, we can move on to other parts of the zoo!
Joshua, our future marine biologist, has such a fascination with sharks and
other creatures in the sea. He was so excited!
Look at that smile!
We went to the IMAX showing of "The Great White Shark".
We saw gorillas.......
We whizzed through the Desert Dome because we were running out of time,
and besides, we didn't need to spend any time looking at the javelinas......
all we have to do is look out the back windows at home to see them!
We ran out of time because of the shortened winter hours, but
we will be back - hopefully in warmer weather!
We ended the day with a fabulous steak meal at Gorat's Famous Steakhouse.
This is one of Warren Buffet's favorite places to eat in Omaha - they
even have a life-sized cutout that you can have your picture taken with!
So much fun!
