A few I missed...

I just realized there were a few pics that I missed on the vacation post.
Messin' around before bedtime...

Vacation pics!

We took a little family vacation last weekend. We took off Friday morning & headed to Omaha. We spent some time at the hotel pool, visited Henry Doorly Zoo & did some shopping. It was nice to get away - even if it was just for 3 days! (Nana & Poppo came too!) We had a blast - glad you guys came!! Love you!

The girls did really well in the car, the entire trip. We stopped at the park in Hastings on our way there so they could stretch their legs & run off some energy.

We grabbed a quick bite to eat when we got to Omaha & then headed to the pool to swim. Peytie was SO excited! (I didn't get any pics of us swimming - the pool area was too humid, the camera kept getting fogged over.)

We got up Saturday morning, ate breakfast & headed to the zoo! Had a lot of fun but boy it was a long day!

Joe's favorite... The CATS!

The Aquarium!

The Lied Jungle!

Sawyer had a good time, looking at all the animals!

Peytie on the walking trail...

Some ugly, mean bird. He was chasing us down the fence line & squawking at us. He was creepy...

The pink flamingo's are MUCH prettier birds! ;o)

Sawyer sacked out for a while...

The train!!

My favorite... the giraffes & penguins!


A fun little snapshot of Sawyer & mommy

Peytie was gettin' pretty tired by this time. She was ready to head back to the pool. I actually think all in all, Sawyer enjoyed the zoo more than Peytie did!

Peytie's favorite... The monkeys, gorillas & chimps!

The nursery

Quick family pic in the Garden of the Senses!

The carousel!

More monkeys!

Peytie - posin' on the baby elephant statue!

Sunday, we did a little shopping at the mall on our way out of town. (Uncle Trav & Jess had come down to Lincoln for the Husker game on Sat. so they came up to Omaha & stayed with us.)

We had a late lunch at Old Chicago's in Kearney (on our way home.)

A quick stop at the Cambridge park before our final destination... HOME!
