Omaha, a photo montage

Sunday, April 12, 2009
We returned from our trip to Omaha on Friday, but I am just now getting around to posting again about the rest of our time there.  We have spent the last couple days back at home just relaxing, unpacking, and helping the baby get adjusted again.  He was one tired guy yesterday!  

I have a bunch of posts I need to catch up on--this one, how we spent Easter, a new post in the cloth diaper series, a new Sunday series....Sigh.  So, I think this one will best be told in pictures and timeline format. I will write a brief caption for each, but I think pictures are probably more interesting than rambling anyway...

Also, these pictures are out of chronological order.  It is too big  a pain to move them around, so I'll just label the days instead...

Friday:  After the baby went to bed, Lucas and I snuck out (around 10:00 pm) while my parents watched him, so that we could attend a concert with my brother and his fiancee, Lindsay.  We saw Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band at the Slowdown.  We are grateful to Jeff, who was able to help get us in to the sold-out show, because it was awesome!  The picture below is what came out of our not-so-awesome cell phone...but, the point of the picture being is that I could see!  At 5'2", seeing anything beyond the lights on the stage is a rare occurrence for me!  This was our first show at the Slowdown and I was very impressed with the venue--great vantage points for short people like myself. 



Thursday:  We drove down to Lincoln, NE with my mom so that Lincoln could both visit the city of Lincoln and meet my cousin Ryan, his wife Rebecca, and their son, Cody.  Below is Ryan with new friends Cody and Lincoln:


Hmmm, maybe Friday?:  My mom and Lincoln are playing with the Fisher-Price Happy Apple.  This was one of my toys when I was little that my mom saved--good thing, too, because Lincoln LOVED that thing!

Back to Friday:  Lucas with Lincoln and Cody.  Cody is so good at having his picture taken!  I hope Lincoln was taking notes =]


Back to Friday:  Just hanging out with the sock monkey and bopping penguin.

No picture, but on Thursday, we had dinner at Taste Restaurant in Omaha.  It was wonderful.  If you live in Omaha, or are there visiting, you should check it out.  It is in Rockbrook Village.  We will definitely return next time we are up there.  If I think about it, I'll try and write a review later.

Ok!  On to Easter....
