Even though we left late, driving at night was the right decision. Drew and Kayley slept most of the way and we only stopped once. On the way home today, we had to stop 4 times and it took 45 minutes longer. Night driving is best for us right now!
We had a great time in Omaha with family. While Andy and his brothers golfed, the girls met my parents and took the kids to the zoo on Friday. We spent a lot of time at the zoo when we lived in Phoenix. After going to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, I don't know that I would ever go back to the zoo in Phoenix. There is no comparison! We were there for only a couple of hours and didn't get to see that much of it, but it was amazing.
Drew and Kayley had a great time playing with their cousins and staying up late. We will see how long it takes for them to get back into a routine with rules. We stayed with Andy's brother Mitch this weekend and he told the kids he has no rules at his house and they can do what they want! At one point I overheard Drew say, "We don't normally get these in the morning." Next thing I know he is walking by me with a popsicle. It was 9:45am. Then Kayley came walking by with one. About 10 minutes later, I went out to the kitchen and found Kayley eating a cupcake Mitch had just given her. I wish I would have had my camera to catch the smirk on that girl's face!
Here are some pictures from the weekend:
