What does a monkey say?!

We had a great trip this weekend! This was our first trip as a family for just us...and we had so much fun!

Saturday morning we met our friends Eric, Courtney, and Landon (link to his page to the right) at the zoo in Omaha. We went through the desert dome, ate lunch, and then went through he lied jungle! After the jungle we started our walk around the rest of the zoo! We saw monkeys, tigers, lions, bears (oh my), birds, fish, penguins...you name it we saw it (except the elephant, that was too far away!). After about three hours Charli finally conked out, so we headed for the hotel. Once we got there and had a snack we all went for a swim in the pool! After supper we all went down for bed! The kids did SO great together, played so nice...it was amazing to see them play together after all this time! This morning we got up and had breakfast together and let the kids play around a little bit before taking off. We all had a great time, and hope to do it again soon! Charli did great :-)

Here are some pictures to enjoy...I have received several emails saying "get those pictures up!!".(they are very much out of order...sorry!!)
