Yesterday, the girls and I loaded up for a picnic lunch at the zoo right after preschool. I took a bit of a risk daring to skip Everly’s nap, but it ended up being well worth it! I’m guessing this will be our best “zoo summer” yet!
The very first thing we noticed when walking into the zoo was a series of GIANT photographs highlighting different animals. We talked to a very nice woman who explained that the project was in partnership with a nature photographer (from Lincoln, NE!) and National Geographic.
He hopes to photograph all animal species and bring awareness to endangered animals in the process. Some of the animals featured were even photographed at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo!
Of course my “E” girls HAD to get their picture taken with the elephant! And speaking of elephants… we decided to set up our picnic lunch in the African Grasslands!
I kept things simple with sandwiches and raw veggies, but the girls were pretty delighted that I packed Stonyfield smoothies as part of their lunch! We had an awesome time enjoying the sunshine, talking about our favorite animals, and deciding which exhibit to check out next!
And Everly quickly realized that YoKids smoothies are almost as fun to wear as they are to eat ;)
Omaha is incredibly lucky to have a zoo like the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium! We take the girls year-round and always find something new to enjoy. Like this sisterly moment with the giraffes…
