Lazy Sunday

August 7, 2016

Sunday we did very little, considering. We slept a little late, we spent a few hours at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo, we drove roughly 400 miles to the northeast corner of South Dakota, we ate dinner at a South Dakota rest stop with ridiculously beautiful views, and we climbed a six-story watchtower that gave us views of three states (North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota).

Sam loved the zoo, and his favorite part–aside from the various animals we saw–was the zoo’s research center, only because it was named after a couple named Bill and Bearnice Grewcock. Several minutes of giggling ensued, along with lots of joking. (“Did you know Bearnice Grewcock?” “No, I never knew Bearnice Grewcock.”)

With about five straight hours of driving, we did get kind of bored in the car, but Sam watched 61*, preparing him for the Roger Maris Museum we’ll visit in Fargo on Monday. Counting cows helped only so much, because we saw so many that I ended up winning 685-670.

Still, the day was pretty enjoyable. Without much to say, I’ll share some of my favorite photos from today. Enjoy.
