The Zoo

Before we even moved to Omaha we heard about how fabulous the Omaha Zoo was, so after going through the zoo we all thought it was good but thought they were missing quite a bit of animals but after talking to our neighbors we realized we missed seeing about a 3rd of the zoo...good thing we bought a season pass!

Hammer Time

Laci came to visit and while she was here, there was a lot of hammers, levels, nails, and measuring. Laci is really good at decorating and I had boxes of decorations that were waiting for their perfect spot on the wall. We also fit in shopping, a craft project, eating out, movie and game nights and the zoo!

Now my home is a lot less plain, thanks Laci!

The Hostess with the Mostess

Ashley got her first job working for "Buffalo Wild Wings" as a hostess, she has met some crazy people and has had first hand experiences with customers that have some serious anger problems, but is really enjoying her job. She has met some fun new friends and is enjoying having money to splurge on herself and to set up a savings account!

Easter Weekend

The kids had Thursday thru Monday off for spring break, we had a great time going to dinner, shopping, going to the movie "Hop", coloring Easter eggs, having a yummy Easter dinner with our friends and taking today to do a little R&R.

Dear Ashley,

I can't believe that you turned 17 today my baby, my first born. We couldn't be more proud of the young woman that you've become.

You have such beautiful true qualities about you, I often hear comments about you as such: "She is so mature for her age", "She is so sweet", "She is beautiful", "She is so classy, "She has such a positive attitude"and I couldn't agree more with all of their comments.

I love how you ask employees at stores or restaurants, "How are you doing" and "How is your day going", I love how you always have a beautiful smile on your face, I love your goals that you have set for yourself and your sweet testimony, you really are such a huge example to me, I love the compassion you show to people, I love how you are so open and honest. I am so thankful for the relationship that we have, and I dread the day when you'll move out and go to college.

I hope you had a great birthday, thanks for being your sweet self.

Love, Mom.
