6 years, 8 years

Matt and I spent the weekend in Omaha, as a very belated anniversary vacation, and Saturday we spent 5 or so hours walking around the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. I'd never been, but heard good things, and since it's relatively close to KC (about 3 hours or so). It was totally worth the trip, their exhibits are pretty amazing. We took a ton of pictures, most of which made it to Flickr already -- though it looks like my upload missed some. You can check out the whole set on Flickr. I even managed to get some really good pictures in the Night Exhibit without using the flash. Omaha Zoo

This one, might be my absolute favorite of them all. And when we were in the reptile area, this big guy came right up to the glass to say hello as I leaned down to take a picture. And Matt managed to get this really awesome shot when we were in the Butterfly house.

The zoo trip wasn't all great. Towards the end of the day, we decided to take the sky tram back towards the entrance. When we got off the sky tram, my legs and feet were on fire. Something about how I was sitting, or my legs were dangling off the seat, I'm not sure, but something just lit them up. I could barely walk to get out of the way of the bench as we got off. I sat on a bench for a while, and my feet got better but it wasn't great. Sunday, I woke up with a super sore calf muscle, and I'm not sure if it's related, or if it's just a result of walking on a not-completely-healed foot for 5 hours. Still, well worth the trip to such an awesome zoo.

Happy anniversary! I had no idea you guys have been married so long. Your husband is a super nice guy, and I hope you're bringing him with you to Seattle again.

Gah - comments are super stupid today.

It wasn't right away (should've said 8 years from our first date). So, we started dating in May 03 and got married in November 05 - which is about a year and a half. All things considered, I suppose it was kind of quick.

Comments are being super stupid. (this is the second one - sorry if you get two emails!)

Thanks, we've been married what'll be six years in November. But, our little anniversary getaway was seven years from our first date. :)
