our mini getaway.

 michael had a few days off for spring break (darn you, snow days!),
 so we decided to take a quick family trip to omaha for a long weekend.

we had a wonderful and sleep deprived (for the little one) time.
lots to do and see meant little to no naptime.
sleeping in the same room as mom and dad meant forget sleep, let's hang out!
needless to say, lights were out extra early for michael and i, 
as we wanted needed our child to get sleep.

anyway, sleep is overrated (ha!), so we made the most of our awake time.
we spent some time in the old market,
a morning at the zoo,
a lovely afternoon trek around a local lake,
and lots of time exploring the city.
oh, and our drive to omaha consisted of several stops
to explore some of the neat sights that western iowa has to offer.

wonderful memories were made for our little family.
Pin It Now!
