A Day at the ZOO !!!

Yes we were off for a day at the Omaha Zoo....great idea right?...so I go in to wake up the family...they all look so comfy...lol..can you believe I was next to Danika and Bentley was at our feet...all nice and close and snuggly


then we hit the road...we run by and Picked up Hannah...remember my niece I hadn't met...well here she is ...she is adorable and looks so much like our family

heres my beautiful Girl

 

and me Driving



Hannah and Danika



Devin with his little glasses



we met up with my Cousin Lori and her girls and all her grandkids...she lives in Omaha and had free passes for the kids...always a plus...it was already starting to heat up for the day...

Hannah the Lion



and all the electric kids



onto the Desert Dome

the girls march ahead



the moms bring up the rear...already we are getting so hot...


the kids sit for a spell waiting for the rest of the group, we had about 15 of us all total


Serenity, Kegan and Hannah
cousins meeting for the first time too


then it was on to see some animals out side...HOT! outside



and we were right back inside...so hot now...almost to hot to go on....

Hannah at the Ape show


Danielle and the kids one the other window



whats next..whos idea was this...so very very HOT! outside...
so back inside to the Aquarium....this was a big hit..and so so much cooler..












ok we had enough, just  couldn't go on any longer...it is the hottest day of the summer on this day and we choose to go to the zoo..which by the way when you go in ....goes down hill so when you come out you have to go up hill....whos plan is this...actually the Omaha Zoo is a very nice zoo...we just chose the wrong day to go...so we headed to Lori's house for a visit, to get cool  and let the kids all get to play..inside in the cool ..

here are the gang of most of the kids



ok now we have to travel a hour and a half back home

this is what the kids did......

Hannah was the first to go



then there went Devin




Danika she is holding out
zoning on the DVD player



poor Devin sit him up ..so we can take his picture...
thats better



an finally Danika went for a little snooze
this means it was a very hot fun day at the zoo..



Note to self...I am not taking vacation to head north in August and expect it to be cool for fun things liks this....lol..what was I thinking!!!...REALLY!

we were together thats all that counts...
Love them all lots.

Oh what a great day Dee Dee... you are right, all was important that day is you were all together. I am sure the kids will treasure that memory. So happy you had the time with them all. They are all so adorable.

Hugs, Deb
