Family Vacation 2013

 Last week we took a much needed family vacation to Omaha, Ne.  It was only four hours away from home so the trip was not too bad with three kiddos.  We had a great time and were not ready to  come home and face all of our daily responsibilities.
 Rolling hill of Nebraska ~ Beautiful corn fields.
 Picnic lunch at a park in Avoca, IA.   We had the most perfect weather,  warm but there was almost always a breeze. 
 Walking the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge between Iowa and Nebraska.

 Fun day at Omaha's Henry Doorley Zoo,  if you ever are in the area this is a zoo you must visit.  It was so nice and lots of things to see.  We did not have time to see it all.
 Brenna and her Daddy riding the Skyfari ~ this is a sky lift that take you over some of the zoo.
 Our three cutie after supper at Cracker Barrel.  One of Piper and Mommies favorite places.
 We visited the The Durham Museum ~ the former Union Station.   Very neat place.   Here are Eric and Piper sitting on one of the original train benches. 
 Look at this cute little girl I found on vacation.
 Of course we had to visit Farmall Land~USA.   Eric has talked about visiting this place for a long time and it just so happened to be on our way.   He was in red tractor heaven (and so was a certain 4year old.)
Blake seemed to enjoy himself too,  Brenna said "I think I will take a nap."
  We had a great time and are already look forward to the next trip we can take together.
