A day at the zoo

Zoo01

As you can tell by my previous post, things have been a little crazy lately. Cathy and I decided we needed to get away and have some fun to try and preserve what's left of our sanity. When we first started dating, we took a lot of weekend trips to unwind and have fun. One of our favorite attractions to visit is the zoo. So, Sunday morning we decided we wanted to take a trip to the Omaha Zoo. We piled into the car, grabbed some snacks, and headed to the zoo to have some fun or, as Cathy says, "to take Brian home." Hahaha...she'll pay for that. Here are some of the photos from the day:

This fish was really cool, his eyes were clear so you could basically see straight through his head.
