Rock the Crocs

When I heard our zoo was having a special event called
 "Rock with the Crocs"
I jumped right in and bought tickets!  
I spy a croc!
Maddy deemed it a perfect occasion for
 Swampy (from "Where's My Water") to attend with us!
We love, love, love the cute little dwarf crocs at our zoo. 
They are the last critters to
arrive at the zoo and among the first to leave when the chilly temps return.
But they are currently in residence and so very happy!
Look at that one grinning! 
There was an animal exhibition portion of the event.
Of course,
Maddy and I were hoping one of the crocs would be put on a leash and
brought over for it,
 but no, just a boa constrictor!

Lincoln's very own "String Beans" performed also.
Maddy is a bit beyond their 2-5 year old
target audience, but it was still fun.
Leo the Lion Trash-eater!
Bonus, we got to wander around the zoo
without crowds of people!
Stare-down between the llama and Maddy -- guess who won??
We love their special events!
Next up --
"Brews and Blues!!"
What a fun zoo --
 bet you wished you lived here too!

Great event and I do wish that we lived closer to the zoo.

You always have the best adventures. We haven't had a single moment to visit any zoos while on this trip. We'll have to make up for it when we get back home again.

What a fun night out. I wish we lived closer to the zoo so we could take advantage of more events. Love that Maddy took her own croc for a visit!

It looks like you had sooo much fun and I remember the weather was perfect that night too! I was so bummed we had to miss this event! Although the punks have technically outgrown the String Beans, I never will! I love them! Bbbbbbbbbbeans! We are heading to Fremont to see them this weekend!
