Hogle Zoo

On Friday the weather was super nice and so we decided to take the kids to the Hogle Zoo. Unfortunately, just about everyone else in Utah also went to the zoo that was soo busy! We had a fun time, but it really made me miss Omaha. It took us about 30-40 minutes to get there, compared to the 2 minutes it would take us to get  to the zoo in Omaha. It was so nice in Omaha just to be able to go to the zoo whenever we wanted. Now that we're in Utah, we actually have to plan a big part of our day if we want to go. The Hogle Zoo was nice, but it just seems like there was so much more to see in Omaha. I really miss that place!

This is the face that Cooper makes when he's at a new place  or if he doesn't know someone. 

Cooper loved looking at the animals!

Ryan's favorite part was playing at the playground. He loved going down the big snake slide.

They all really liked the carousel  ride.

I think this was the kids' favorite animal at the zoo!

Cooper had fun hanging on the bars.

His favorite part of the zoo was seeing the little animals in the small-mammal house.
