Omaha!!

May 4, 2009

We got back late last night from a FABULOUS weekend in Omaha.  The weather couldn’t have been better for starters and we always have  a ton of fun hanging out with our friends and eating.  (We were planning to just be gone Sat-Sun, but when we realized how few meals we’d actually get to eat there, we left Friday afternoon instead!  We love the restaurants in Omaha!)

And of course we did the zoo.  It’s a must.  Our local zoo should be bulldozed.  I’m not kidding.  When you’ve got a world-class zoo two hours away, it’s totally worth the trip. dscf2918

dscf2919The acquarium was a favorite.  I think we’ll have to invest in some goldfish. 😉

The petting zoo was Liam’s absolute favorite spot.  He could have stayed with those baby goats all day.

Crashed after the zoo.  This is the first time that the boys have shared a bed and apparently they like to cuddle!  (You can see Liam’s hand sticking out from underneath Gavin-so sweet!)

AND….the WHOLE reason we went to Omaha this weekend was to see this girl marry this boy.  We love them and are so excited to have been a part of their special day!

Lookin’ pretty snazzy at the wedding

We also spent some time (not enough!) with one of our best friends Tim (Uncle Tim to the boys).  We ate lots of donuts, played some “targs” (guitars) at his shop, and caught up on life (I always forget to take pics when Tim’s around-next time, buddy!)

On a very depressing note, I failed my 28 week glucose test last week and now I have to spend 4-5 hours at the hospital on Wednesday doing another test.  So frustrating (for the over-achiever, perfectionist that I am) and SO BORING!

And to end on a bright note…..Raun Kaufman will be in town tomorrow night!
