Summer is here and we are on the go! On Father’s Day weekend we headed to Jim’s sister’s house in Nebraska to meet up with the rest of the family for the yearly family gathering. Color Wonder helped Robert pass the miles in the car. I was busy reading Early Head Start regulations in the back seat as part of the whirlwind at work.
Our hotel had a small patio where Robert enjoyed yelling directions at Daddy as he unloaded the car.
Of course we had to have a workspace for Mommy. As I checked into the office via email, Robert checked his phone messages.
Robert’s cousin Aaron made his day by letting him see the baby ducks and chicks.
Cousin Aaron showed me all his animals. The baby ducks were cute.
Ella is absolutely in love with Baby Robert… except he doesn’t follow directions really well and it exasperates her sometimes.
Friday night we ate, and caught up with everyone, and ate… and laughed and enjoyed being together as a family. By the time we got back to the hotel Robert was absolutely tuckered out!. We used Priceline for the hotel and got a really great deal on a nice room, but it was a little further away from the house than we would have preferred… it’s a trade off.
Saturday morning Aunt Debbie had planned an outing for the girls (and Jim and Robert) to the Sunken Gardens and Lincoln Zoo. The flowers were very pretty.
There was also a really cool fish pond.
We even got to ride a train.
Saturday was Uncle Gary & Aunt Sheri’s anniversary so we had a party… and cake!
Sunday we all had breakfast together and then headed for home. It was such a fun weekend… I’m ready to go back.
