Absence makes the heart grow fonder....???

no!?!?! :D

LOL!!! On Inauguration Day the kids and I spent THE ENTIRE DAY in front of the screen watching all the events unfold!!! We marveled at how exciting it all must be for the Obama family, especially the girls of course!!! What an amazing day that was!!

Yesterday we spent the day with Daddy in Omaha. He had a physical therapy appointment for Tendinitis in his arm and we were allowed in to watch the therapy. Jack was very interested in a book showing all the body systems and he spent ages reading through it!

He and I went outside whilst we waited and we discussed the relative weight of a large boulder! He was sure it was not as heavy as Jack .... so he tried to move it!! LOL!!! Ah, the innocence of youth!!! After lunch hubby had a meeting downtown and Jack had fallen asleep in the van, so we parked on the very top of a giant parking lot and looked down at the ant like people below! There are some fabulous sculptures in down town Omaha, and huge tall buildings... ! We enjoyed marveling at them and taking pics of them for a while.

With Jack woken up we got out and went down to the street level to get a drink from a Scooters store.

Once our thirst was satiated we took a stroll along the streets and wandered into huge buildings to learn about their design. One bank building has the front of an older building inside it so we spent a lot of time talking about how they did that and why. It was a really fun afternoon though we did get neck ache from all the looking up!!!!

At bedtime we talked about our day and Jessie said she LOVED Omaha and wanted to go back again tomorrow!!! She also said I was a GREAT MOM and Jack, of his own free will and volition said I LOVE YOU Mom...!!! Coincidence?!?!? I think not!!! LOL!!!
