A Day Off from School

Today the boys had a day off for teacher in-service. It was a beautiful day and I thought we needed to get outside and do something fun. I didn't want to waste the day watching TV or playing video games. Our neighbors/good friends had the exact same thought! So we put our heads together and decided to take our kids down to the pedestrian bridge.

Zach, Charlotte, Sam, Alex, & Josh
Of course it's always fun to be in both Iowa AND Nebraska at the same time!!

When we got to the other side of the bridge, there was a park not too far away for the kids to play at. As we were walking I turned around and saw the Omaha skyline. It looked cooler in real life.
After the bridge, we went to the big slides downtown. Here is my 7 Days: Day 3 shot:
We had so much fun zipping down those slides!!

 After awhile, the trains started!! CHOOOO CHOOOO!!

Us moms may have even participated in that fun!!

Laughing and giggling the whole way down!! We even did a big train with moms and kids- but no pictures of that as we were all busy sliding down the slide. :)

I feel SO lucky to have these two ladies in my life!!

After the slides we headed to ecreamery for a delicious ice cream!! All in all I would say it was a perfect day!! Well, minus Zach's flip flop breaking on the bridge. But that was nothing a little piggy back ride...ok a very long piggy back ride couldn't fix! :) It really was a great day!!!
