This past weekend we loaded the van (yes, loaded the van - seems like you have to pack half the house when you travel with a baby) and headed to Omaha for the weekend to celebrate Kaiden's 4th birthday. Kaiden had been anticipating this trip for quite a while and was super excited. Here's a peek into our weekend trip to Omaha:
We headed out Friday morning. Kaiden is pretty excited as he has been looking forward to this day for weeks.
We arrived in Omaha Friday afternoon for our first adventure at the Omaha Children's Museum. Let's just say Kaiden (and Dan) loved it.
There was lots to do at the museum. Kaiden especially enjoyed the "auto shop" where he became a mechanic. He changed the tire; checked under the car; changed the oil and even answered the phone when it rang.
In the art studio, his imagination was the limit. There were all sorts of materials to create whatever he could dream up. Daddy made a flower for little miss Jada:
They also spent a little time in the wood shop and created quite the masterpiece:
Saturday we spent the day at the Henry Doorly Zoo. It was a perfect day for the zoo.
Jada loved watching the animals and fish.
This was Kaiden's most favorite part of the day. The train!
It was in the rain forest that Jada first discovered daddy's whiskers on his chin. She was so captivated by the whiskers. Who knew daddy's whiskers could be more interesting than the Omaha Zoo?
Besides the train ride, Kaiden's other favorite part about the zoo was the "hard" lions. Meaning, the lion statue right inside the gate.
