Busy Weekend!

We spent the weekend in Omaha Nebraska attending a beautiful wedding. Brian's cousin Amy was married on Saturday and it was a very special day. When I met Amy she was just 10 years old! She is now married to a wonderful man and they are looking forward to starting their new life together. Amy is such a wonderful young lady and deserves EVERYTHING good that comes her way. We were blessed to be there for her big day! Congrats Amy and Kyle!!
We got to spend some time with our Joplin family who were staying in the room next to ours! The kids loved hanging out with the big boys! We managed to squeeze in a trip to Scheels (A sporting goods store that features a Farris wheel!) and as you can see, Big Daddy and Cohen had a great time. Claire was more interested in looking at the fishing lures.

We ate lunch at HuHot (someone NEEDS to open one here!) and headed back for some swimming at the hotel. Thank goodness the pool was indoors because it was VERY cold! We got cleaned up and it was time for the wedding. The beautiful ceremony was highlighted by our little Coco who hiccuped the whole time! Luckily they were just cute little hiccups. Funny...I didn't know my family was capable of doing anything in a small fashion. The reception was a lot of fun. I LOVED watching Grandma and Grandpa doing the Chicken Dance! SO cute!!
Apparently, we missed the big fun because we had to get our little sleepyheads back to the hotel! We woke up to a BUNCH of snow!! We slowly made our way home and were so thankful for our children who travel like CHAMPS!!! I'm sure the fact that Grandma was in the backseat playing "talent show" and "I spy" helped the situation immensely.
It was a great weekend but as usual, we were so happy to be home and cozy! Coming of our new "toy" that Big Daddy bought. Fun times in the woods ahead for this clan!

Cohen looks like Brian in this picture and where oh where did my baby's curls go? I'm crying.....

Ok. Am I the only one who finds it funny that Brian's knees are all curled up just to get in the ferris wheel?

And - did you stop to have a Runza while in NE? YUM!

I LOVE that picture of Bob and I. By the way, I knew I needed to lose some weight when it took all of the attendants power to latch the bar. I dont think Indoor Farris Wheels are made for people who are "large and in charge"
