Adventures In Omaha

We got up early yesterday and hit the road… destination Omaha, Nebraska.  About a three hour drive from home.

Our first stop was the Omaha Children’s Museum.  Way cool.  A lot of good hands on exhibits.  I think Roberts favorite was this light piano where you hit a button and a corresponding light lit up on the wall with the sound.

Then we walked over to Union Station.  They have neat sculptures that talk…

And there are benches to relax on when your Mommy is driving you nuts telling you that you are not allowed to duck under the protective ropes in the exhibit even though you fit under them just fine and all you wanted to do was play the really expensive antique piano…

But best of all they have a real old fashioned soda fountain!  Robert got some vanilla ice cream while Jim and I both had skakes… served with the extra shake in the metal mixing cup.US Soda Fountain

We went back to Old Town and had dinner at Spaghetti Works.

They had a lady there who made balloon animals.  She made Robert a puppy.

We walked around Old Town for a bit and then came back to the room.  Robert had only had a 20 minute nap all day and should have been exhausted but he got his second wind and was up exploring until midnight!
