henry dorley zoo

in case you didn't know (because i surely didn't) the omaha zoo has just been voted the #1 zoo in america. no joke. and now that i have been...i can totally see why. it is amazing...and truly these pictures don't even do it justice.

this was taken in the jungle. a multi-story complex where vines hung everywhere and all the animals were just a mere touch away...too cool!

the aquarium was this girls favorite!

admiring a teeny bird in the butterfly sanctuary.

pretty girl wanted her picture taken in the vine swing too...

i obliged, twice! :)

silly kiddos thought he dessert/caves were scary...or at least they pretended so.

like i said...pete and repeat.

big girl cousins.

vivian petting a starfish. she looks a little proud, no?

the shark tank crew.

frannie and nattie with the butterflies.

muscle men.

LOVE this boy!

i was totally mesmerized by the wonderful jellyfish exhibit.

petting a purple starfish.

all six (ages 2,4,6,8,10,12) checking out the new baby giraffe.

the two littles.

i have no idea what this is called but it is the size of my hand and looks like a hippo, a butterfly, and a jellyfish had a baby. i was STUNNED! this silly girl too!

climbing and clowning around.

waterfall and the kids.

monkey exhibit.

inside the bubble to see the monkeys.

bauer helping frances practice her smile for pictures. haha!

favorite picture ever!
