Well. I can honestly say I have NEVER had a day like today. No words for the craziness (somebody told me google has 350+ stories about 52 Zoos). If you were keeping up on facebook or twitter, I almost feel like I owe you an apology. And if you weren’t and want all the juicy details now, I owe you an apology too, because I don’t have the oomph to go through it all again.
I’m just sorry all across the board.

When I’m too tired to think, I default to Zoo Reviews. Here’s #41, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo, also known as our first of 11-Zoos-in-15-Days from July 10-24.
Now every time I see a pic of us in front of a zoo sign, I’m going to think about the article that said “the Taviano family claims to hit 52 Zoos in 52 Weeks.”
I posted another pic of this little jaguar a couple days ago. I could’ve eaten him, he was so cute! And in a week (ish) we’re going to take a little trip back to the Akron Zoo (Zoo #2 on our Tour) because they have THREE four-month-old jaguar cubs. I’m hoping to bring one home with me.
Okay, whoever (wink) designed this stunning creature is a GENIUS.
I’ve got a thing for waterfalls.
Awww… look at the cute, sleepy little polar bear.
Two bird pics in one post. What has come over me?
I thought this was a fun view of P. Bear.
The enormous Desert Dome is way impressive. Too bad I’m mad at the desert (how hard is it to install a gas pump out there, really?). And too bad there’s not a single animal in the desert that I even like. A bit.
I think this beauty is a leopard. I have no idea what the difference is between a leopard and a jaguar. Usually I just instinctively “know.” So if this isn’t a leopard, I must just instinctively “not know.”
And that’s the zoo in a nutshell. Lots more to come in El Booko. Thanks for all your prayers, friends! For wisdom, strength, courage, provision and grace as we navigate our way through the wonderful world of Zoo Aftermath. Love you guys!
