A Wild Wilson Weekend

By: Mr. Wilson on May 18, 2009
image We love the Lincoln Zoo, but sometimes you've just got to get out of town. Yesterday the full Wilson clan headed up to Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. We usually make the trip once or twice each year. The big hit of the zoo for Robbie was the train. He loves trains, thanks in large part to Thomas & Friends. Yesterday he got to ride in the caboose. Other big hits were the polar bear and the sharks. We didn't make it onto the Skyfari, which I think Robbie would have loved. Oh well, maybe next time. That's not all that happened this weekend. On Saturday, Robbie turned 3. We kept the celebration relatively subdued because he's having a party next weekend. Still, he got to open presents from some family members. They included a scooter, games, a computer, and the surprise hit of the day, a baseball and bat. Time to clear out some old toys to make room for the new. Saturday also marked my last two high school soccer games of the season. Nope, no finals for me this year. No worries, though; the folks doing the games today and tomorrow are very deserving. I'm down six pounds over the last two weeks of the season. I think I'm going to use that to my advantage and try to run a couple road races this summer. I wonder if I could break 19 minutes in a 5K? I haven't done that since high school. It sure would be fun to try. How was your weekend?


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

We should get a team together for the charity run on June 6.

Hmm, perhaps. That’s a little earlier than I was thinking and I may be helping a friend move that day, but it’s got potential.

Are you thinking the 3k or 10k?

I could do either but 3k would be easier and faster. That’s like a 15 minute jog.

I took part in the “Taking Charge” discussion about the city’s budget priorities. Awesome experience.

Well…I finished the last of my last online class and am at last GRADUATED…All that, and all I get is a paper saying—with much truth to it—that I have successfully achieved the highest level of BS… How appropriate!
