So of course they had to throw the party to be remembered!
They hosted a gigantic party for all of our cousins and friends. I lived in Omaha for a bit, so I got to see several friends that I hadn’t seen in ages. They setup a facebook event and it became a block party of sorts, as most of the younger crowd on their block attended the party, too.
I’m currently staying with my favorite cousins Sarah and Hugh from my mom’s side in Omaha. They are brother and sister and great buds. They really get on each others’ nerves, but they also make up and have the wildest jokes together. They are so close that when they moved away from home, they decided to share an apartment in downtown Omaha.
My favorites were the zebras. I think the baby zebras were cuddling each other here:
We also saw hyenas, lions, cheetahs, and giraffes. Sarah fell in love with the bunnies, of course.
Just so you can get a glimpse of how awesome this zoo is:
However, I’m not fully supportive of zoos. They are pretty incredible because we get to see all these animals we wouldn’t normally see, but I still feel a bit uncomfortable about them locked up in there. I read recently that some animals get depressed when they get locked up for a long time like that. Who knew that animals could get depressed?
It was an incredible day, anyway.
Tomorrow we have a big party planned for all the young(er) cousins.
