It’s been another relatively quiet weekend with friends and family here in Omaha. On Friday night, Hannah mentioned that we hadn’t been to the “big indoor park” (AKA the Children’s Museum) in quite a while. It was the first Friday of the month, which meant they were open until eight o’clock, so it seemed like an ideal time to drop by. The kids got to sort produce and play with birthday cakes in the food area, ride a zip line and make comic book superheroes upstairs, and also take a ride on a carousel, a slide, and crawl through an obstacle course or two. We also bumped into some old friends paying an evening visit to the museum with us.
Spring has definitely sprung, with trees all over Omaha turning blooming white all at once. Our daffodils have also bloomed in the front yard, making for the perfect time for a front-yard picnic with Hannah during nap-time on Sunday afternoon (as a hawk loomed overhead).
That evening, we dropped by Dennis and Kara’s house for a barbecue and belated birthday celebration with their boy Matthew who turned four last week. We had a few Scooby-Doo toys for him and got to have some quality grown-up time as the kids played with each other (and the dog) most of the afternoon.
