Trip to the Omaha Zoo

When my parents from Florida, were here in Sioux Falls, visiting a few weeks ago, we all took a weekend trip to Omaha, to visit the incredible Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.

Mr Boy didn't mind the dark aquarium because it reminded him of Curious George's Cave Episode. 
He kept yelling, "cave! George! cave! flashlight!"

Inside the largest indoor desert in the world

Some penguins are barely visible behind us.

Eating out with the grandparents at Famous Dave's

Playing in the sprinkler in our yard as the grandparents slave away picking weeds.

Today we drove 11 hours to Denver to visit Dave's family.  We woke at 3:30am and drove like crazy till we got here at 1:30 (1 hour time difference).  I prepared for weeks for this trip, thinking of all the ways we could keep Mr Boy entertained and happy for the long drive. I brought all kinds of things just in case and planned on letting him out to run around for an hour... but in the end, he just sat in his car seat, chatting and holding his monkey for most of the trip, content to keep on driving. We were very impressed with his car-trip skills. We will be here 10 days, hanging out with family and friends, and even go camping with the whole family while here. We've been watching a "Curious George goes Camping" video to get Mr Boy pumped up. If Curious George can do it, he can to. :) Will update when we get back!
