We decided to take a road trip.. two vehicles, 3 adults, six kids and a puppy!!
We started out at the Durham Western Heritage Museum in Omaha. We had such fun at this lovely museum! There are all different train carriages you can walk through, there are lots of things to play with and in the amazing Union Station building life sized statues of war time characters will suddenly start into conversation as you approach them.... of course, heathens that we are, we just love sticking our heads out of holes....!! :D
This particular carriage always gives me the creeps... it makes my stomach hurt and my body aches... I've never gone any further than the first seat.... creepy....!!
After the museum we decided to head to the Omaha Zoo for some lunch! We'd miscalculated the lateness of the season and of the day, so the restaurants were closed... ah...!! We settled for some fast food and carried on regardless!!! Such dedication!!!
Jessie has boldly overcome her fear of sharks and now LOVES the aquarium at the zoo. We also saw the new Butterfly House and the Desert Dome. Our favorite part had to be the swamp under the dome.. it's amazing. It's just like walking through a swamp at night with the frogs croaking and the mist creeping... no photos of course... tsk ! Sorry!
After the trains and the zoo in Omaha we came back to Lincoln to the Valentino's Buffet... it's HUGE and great for kids! There is sooo much food and they can all help themselves..... ahem.... I try not to think about it too much... at least no one got SICK this year...!! :D
