January at the Zoo

Alivia is still on vacation, the sun was shining, and it was not as bitter cold as it had we decided to make a trip to the zoo!

I was surprised to learn the zoo did not open until 10 this time of year (Didn't it open at 9:30 last winter?).

Alivia was excited to go since she is usually in school when we go during the school year. We stayed close to the entrance going in and out of the buildings. It was actually hot! The jungle was wet (and hot), we watched the penguins get fed and then off to the stinky desert. The Butterflies are only open for 15 minutes at the top of every hour weekdays (which is also a new thing), so we missed them. We also hit the building with the jeep. This was my first visit to the zoo without a stroller...and we did fine. My arms were sore from carrying everything around, though.

A bird ate a mouse right in front of us....yummy!

It was a fun morning. We got exercise while learning about the animals in fresh winter air. Just another day in Nebraska!
