Omaha…somewhere in middle America….

We took a trip to Omaha for the 4th.  I was a little nervous about how our very active toddler would do in the car for that many hours.  Turns out I didn’t need to be nervous.  He did great!  We had one little blow up in Wichita, but that was more the fault of his parents than Hudson. :)  If you are looking for a playground at a McDonalds in Wichita, you are pretty much out of luck. 

For our first full day in Omaha we went to one of our favorite places…the zoo!  In the past we have been very lucky that the zoo has not been crowded at all.  This time was a little different – since the 4th fell on a Saturday the zoo was pretty packed on Friday.  Then a downpour started and all of the inside attractions filled up fast.  We missed a couple of our favorite stops, but we will just have to hit them next time.  Luckily, we did all of the outdoor sights before the rain.  Our first stop was the giraffes (which is my favorite part:)):

1) Hudson just grew up in that picture with Trent. He looks about 3 months older than last time I saw him. He's just gorgeous!

2) I'm at my mom's and can't get on facebook except by phone and don't like typing msgs. on there, soooo I thought I knew that girl b/c I was supposed to know her. I saw all the friends we had in common and thought that I must've forgotten her. Apparently I will need to delete. SCARY. ;-)
