His project went on to compete against all the other best science fair project in Omaha at the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium this Saturday.
We checked him in at 7:30.
Then Travis, Isaak and I had the world's best zoo to ourselves for the most part. The zoo didn't open until 10. We didn't waist any time. We started off in the Aquarium. It was too cold to hang around outside.
We stayed awhile watching the penguins.
There were a lot of orange things in one aquarium.
Ok so one yellow-green living thing.
The Jelly Fish are so cool to me. They are like watching a lava lamp.
I've painted a few octopuses or octopi in my life. Did you know that the plural of octopus can be octopuses or octopi?
We don't get a lot of time alone with one child, so we took the opportunity to shoot photos with just Isaak in the Rain Forest.
Isaak took a photo of us too.
This peacock walked right on past us outside.
My favorite moment was hard to shoot. A gorilla feeding her baby.
The baby had some playtime after eating. I think he or she just discovered their feet.
Mica didn't place in this Science Fair. He was really bummed. I felt bad for him. One of the judges gave him their business card. He thought for sure he won something. I said that he should just be happy he got that far. Life is difficult at times.
