This past Sunday we decided last minute to do something fun with the kids since Blake had the day off. We thought taking a quick trip to the Lincoln Children's Zoo and going out to eat afterwards sounded not too tiring but still fun. I hadn't been to the Lincoln Zoo since I was probably in 1st or 2nd grade, but Brooks had gotten to go last summer with Grandma and Papa. We got there about 10:30 and we were pretty much done by noon, so it was actually just perfect for the kids' attention spans and wasn't too exhausting for anyone! (We really didn't want to wear ourselves out on a day that was supposed to be a relaxing day off!) Brooks was really excited to see the penguins again, and we thought Keely would probably enjoy it too since she loves animals.
Brooks remembered the peacocks from the last time and he was still not impressed. He's not a fan of them walking freely around, so Blake usually had to hold him if we saw one.
