Omaha Zoo and Children's Museum

We have had a really busy October so far, especially this week! In addition to our usual story time at the library on Tuesday, we had a library Halloween party on Thursday. We also went to a pumpkin patch on Wednesday and this morning we went to a toddler soccer session sponsored by our Parents as Teachers organization. All this activity has resulted in long naps for Sarah, so that makes for a happy momma :)

A couple weeks ago, we went to Omaha with Josh, Ashley and the girls. While we were there, we visited the Children's Museum and the zoo. We had a great time and will definitely have to make it a yearly event! Here are a bunch of pictures from the weekend.

Happy Jorjia!

Lots of fun with cousins!

Last month Josh, Ashley, Annaliese and Jorjia spent the weekend at our house. We went to Union Station in KC to see a dinosaur exhibit and play at Science City. The girls had lots of fun together! Here are some pictures from the weekend.

Mark and Josh put the arch together...and it fell over about 2 seconds after I took this picture :)

We had lots of fun and just went to Omaha with them last weekend. I will post pictures from that soon.
