We had lots of family time over the break...Casey had the entire week between Christmas and New Years off, so he kept especially busy with our crew.
The kids had dentist appointments on Tuesday afternoon and they picked me up after work. We told them we were going out to eat. They obviously have no sense of time because we drove to Omaha and they didn't whine (or have a clue!) that we had left Lincoln. We grabbed Subway close to our hotel and told them we were going to eat it someplace else.
We pulled up to our motel and Casey checked in. It wasn't until we had already grabbed our bags and were walking into the Holiday Inn and had pointed out the water slide to the kids that it started to sink in. We surprised them with a short getaway to an indoor water park and a trip to the zoo the next day. They seriously had no clue!
Eating his sandwich before heading to the pool!
"Come on, elevator!!!"
Unfortunately the actual pool was being re-filled with ice cold water. So we hung out in the hot tub and on the slides and play structure. I don't think the kids even noticed the pool was down!
Rockin' the slide!
Burning some time while Daddy gets us ice cream!!!
Wednesday morning we headed to the Henry Doorly Zoo...
Our little monkey loved the big apes!!
By the time we got to this exhibit, I was pretty jealous of this big guy. Kennedy and Chase didn't sleep very well and I'm a light sleeper so I was ready to curl up for a nap!
We treated the kids to an IMAX movie, one on caves. Casey had never seen one either and we thought it would be a good fit since we had toured our first cave last summer. We loved it! And everyone sat through the whole thing. We will definitely be going back!!
Making a winter craft before heading back to the little city!
Last weekend I took the kids to Lost In Fun, it was Chase's first time there. I didn't have my good camera but took a couple pics of him. He was a hoot on the slide, he went down head first every time (with me assisting him of course!)
Last week we had McCoy and Ryder over for a couple hours. Check out McCoy and Chase's spaghetti faces!
Have a great week!
