While there, we:
Pretended to be pioneers while visiting the Winter Quarters Visitor's Center
Made friends with the gorillas and other animals at the zoo
(Notice how large the gorilla is that I am sitting on? Yeah. It took some acrobatics to get up there. Impressed I made it? Thought so.)
Saw the Missouri River
Got stuck on a statue by the Missouri River
(All I wanted to do was sit on his shoulders. Thought it would make a good photo op. Didn't go as I had planned. Here, Teresa and I are strategizing how to get me down...)
Stood in two states at one time
(This footbridge spanned the Missouri River and went from the Nebraska side to the Iowa side)
Ate at the delicious California Tacos. Yum.
(As featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives)
Ate scrumptious ice cream at e Creamery. Also yum.
Rode the train home. After 23 hours on it, we made it home!
Other activities included sewing projects, visiting Creighton Law School, laughing, eating lots of good food, late nights chatting, sleeping in, playing with William, napping, and much, much more.
Jealous? You should be. :)
