The goal of visiting Omaha was going to the supposed best zoo in the world. We arrived there at 10:30am and left at 4:15pm, shortly before they closed at 5pm. It's great having the GPS to navigate us around, and we had no issues getting there or back to the hotel. Firstly I think the zoo could be in the running for the best in the world, once their extensive construction is complete. There was a lot of construction, which really distracted from the experience.

Here's a unique "two-fer" in our campaign: today I was invited to be the luncheon speaker at the Papillion Kiwanis Club's regular meeting. It was held at The Egg and I.
Yesterday, I spoke to the Beatrice Kiwanis members, so this was a rare two-days-in-a-row experience.
Kiwanis members are smart, savvy business and community leaders, so it was a privilege to talk with them . . . and in two communities back-to-back, no less.
