When we left Grampa's house, we went to Omaha for the night. Because we didn't feel like jumping right in the car that next morning (and we wanted to wear B&H out), we decided to seize the opportunity and visit Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium. We had high expectations.
But, the crankiness, tiredness (Hannah didn't sleep again the night before), and the extreme Nebraskan heat caused for a very short loop through the zoo. Parts were awesome - the aquarium is really very cool! Parts were underwhelming - the "rainforest" is boring - the Tropics Trail at the MN Zoo is far better! Parts were so unique - the Desert Dome is unlike anything else I've seen at a zoo!
Here was our day, documented in Instagrams. :)
