Since I didn't have to work today and the weather was great, we took Sam and Austin to the Lincoln Children's Zoo. Everyone else within a 50 mile radius also had the same idea this morning, but it was still fun even though we sometimes had to wait for a while to get a good view. We have a membership so we can go often, and that helps on mornings like this one. We don't feel like we have to stay and "get our money's worth" -- we stay as long as everyone is having a good time because we know we can come back again any time we want to.
We decided to purchase the combination pass, so we also visit the Lincoln Children's museum pretty often. I think the kids like the museum better, but the zoo was fun today. I am hoping that our granddaughters will be able to join us this summer. Of course they are used to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, so the Lincoln Children's Zoo may not be as much fun for them.
