{Trip to Omaha}

Last week we took an impromptu trip to the Omaha Zoo. By impromptu, I mean we decided to pack up and leave at 9:30 a.m. That doesn't sound too crazy until you realize that the zoo is three hours away from us and we have a 4 month old and a 3 year old. The trip there was great. Luce slept almost the entire way, and when she wasn't sleeping she just giggled and talked. Henry watched a movie on his DVD player and was just happy as a clam-as usual. This was Henry's first trip where he was old enough to see everything and recognize it all. It was so cool to take him through the jungle dome and the aquarium. They had a super cool splash park and of course we hit Stingray Beach so H could pet the stingrays. I think that was definitely his favorite, he didn't want to stop! We also got to see baby giraffes which Henry thought was the coolest. It's my favorite because I've been doing the whole picture thing, practicing and whatnot, and Henry has been watching me nonstop. Naturally he wants to be just like his momma (😉), so he has been mimicking me and asking to use my phone to take pictures. Below is the picture he snapped of the giraffes. Talent, if I've ever seen it. lol. But honestly, it means so much to me how much our kids learn from us and aspire to be like us.
It was definitely hot, the hottest day of the year thus far, but we survived. Henry and Luce both loved it. Luce was awesome all day and even took a tiger snooze in the stroller. The ride home was a different story though. Both kids slept for maybe the first 45 minutes or so. Until Luce woke up and lost it. Henry tried to sleep through it, but he just couldn't. Poor guy. He's such a patient and understanding big brother. Especially since sis cried the entire rest of the drive. Almost 2 hours. I couldn't believe her stamina and that she just kept going!
We won't be making anymore road trips anytime soon, but it was still a fun day!
