The Piersma Family Visits Omaha

Way back on August 27, we were thrilled to have a weekend full of fun with our friends the Piersma Family! Casey, Tommy, Kathryn, Eleanor, and baby Madeline made the 6 1/2 hour drive from the cities down to Omaha. It was a weekend full of fun!

In addition to hanging out at the house and just chatting while the kids played, we did a few outings. We enjoyed a picnic at Elmwood Park and the kids had a blast on the playground.

Then we ventured off on the "Bridge to Nowhere" (The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge) which is actually a huge and beautiful bridge that crosses the Missouri River. We started walking from Nebraska and made it all the way to Iowa!

We ended the weekend with breakfast at Perkins and a visit to the Mormon Trail Center at Winter Quarters just outside of Omaha. What a fun and special visit it was. We can't wait for the next opportunity to spend time with our good friends!

Ah- so fun! We had a great time seeing you guys and visiting Omaha. We'll have to plan another trip south again after the babies are born.
