Henry Doorly Zoo

This past weekend, our good friend Adam got married in Omaha, so we made a weekend out of it, wedding on Saturday and we went to the Henry Doorly Zoo on Sunday!
The first stop was the aquarium and we stopped at the "Touch and Feel" station to touch the sea urchin and several star fish!
Then to the fish tanks...lots of fish!
We loved watching the penguins swim, splash and waddle around!
Trigg found a little shark sleeping in the corner.
This tank was especially fun...lots of bright colored fish and coral!
...the bright orange fish caught Trigg's eye
The dudes with the bright orange fish!
Next up...Shark Tank!  We loved the underwater tunnel with all the fish and water animals swimming all around us!
Sea turtles, sharks, sting rays and lots of coral...so much to see!
After the aquarium, we headed around the zoo and found some zebras!
We found a sculpture of a monkey that resembled Trigg's shirt (just missing the tie and glasses)!
We found the big bell to ring as we were headed to the gorilla/monkey house.
The gorilla's were eating a snack and roaming around their world...
...this one grabbed some food and came and sat down by us!
Trigg tried to tickle his back through the glass!
After the gorilla's we made our way through the desert dome!
Family photo with a turtle!
We had a great weekend in Omaha, it was fun to see our friends at the wedding and the zoo was great!
