What's Up Wednesday: Omaha Vacation

Every other summer we do a vacation with my parents and my brothers' families.  We've been to Colorado, DC, Wisconsin Dells, and this year was Omaha.  It was nice because we only had to drive two hours, and we stayed for almost a week. The location was perfect; my parents rented a spacious home outside of Omaha that had its own pond, a big yard, beautiful deck, and a hot tub.  We took a trip to the zoo and the children's museum. We spent lots of time at the pond where Henry learned to fish. He can now bait his own hook and cast! I even got to go golfing and managed to par a hole, which is a feat since I haven't golfed in two years.  It was a fantastic trip.

Summer Remix Challenge: Week 3

Three weeks down in the Summer Remix Challenge with Greater Than Rubies,  and I'm beginning to feel kind of over it, but I'm still trucking. If you're new here or forgot, here are the 30 pieces I chose to remix and outfits 1-7 are here, and 8-13 are here. I'm using the Rhonna Designs app for the cute numbers on each picture.

I was on vacation this past week.  I admit that I REALLY wanted to wear a couple of my new thrifty finds, but I stuck to the remix. Be proud of me.


We went to the Omaha Zoo, so this looks a little safari-ish, but I suppose I fit right in.

Hat - Target
Necklace - The Vintage Honey

Summer Bucket List Linkup: That time we tried to see fireworks



The Fourth of July is probably my favorite holiday.  I love, love, love summer and a holiday that matches all that is summer is just perfect. The past few years, kiddos have changed that a bit. Early bedtimes don't allow for seeing fireworks and parades happen during naptime kind of hinder the full celebration of the holiday. Not trying to be a downer, but it's true.  Because we didn't get to see fireworks on the 4th, we thought we'd try to catch them at our local minor league's game.  Every Friday home game they put off fireworks at the end.


So, we packed up, and headed out.  This picture was right when we sat down.  Everyone was pretty happy.  We got some food, and settled in.
