On Thursday morning, we were surprised by a town wide power outage... extending to the greater Ashland metropolitan area, where we live. The result: no school! It was a gorgeous fall day, so we spent the day at the world-class Henry Doorly Zoo in neighboring Omaha.

Thomas, Anna, Sarah, Abbey and Candace pose on the lion statues near the entrance.

Peering through the spherical window into the gorilla habitat.

Anna, Thomas and Abbey on the Skyfari.

In the cave exhibit... Thomas was a little nervous.

Technical difficulties

I'm having trouble with my camera/computer interface. My photo software, which is malfunctioning, is also trying to take over my computer. So, I have been hampered in my ability to post interesting things with pictures... and let's face it, blog posts without pictures should be used sparingly, because they are just not as fun. I think I have discovered a stop-gap method to use until I can take my computer in to the techie geniuses to be debugged... so thanks for hanging with me, faithful readership. Back soon with fun zoo and rodeo pictures!
