It was the perfect Saturday for an adventure!
The sun was shining, the weather was warm, and the skies were blue as we headed to Omaha to rendezvous with the girls.
Three generations of girls –
Grandma, aunts, sisters, cousins.
We explored secret gardens and hidden attic rooms.
Shared wild rides filled with laughter and silliness.
Ate real Irish food at the Brazen Head which inspired a medley of Irish Rover songs from our childhood.
“There were green alligators and long necked geese,
Humpty back camels and chimpanzees,
The cats, the rats, the elephants but sure as you’re born,
The loveliest of all was the unicorn…”
We visited antique stores and thrift stores.
Enjoyed apple cider and hot coffee.
Ate chocolate and pumpkin cookies.
And ice cream.
I think there’s an rule about the necessity of ice cream on an epic adventure.
We hiked, climbed trees, explored, got stuck on cliffs and accidentally photobombed several families at the park trying to get pictures for Christmas cards.
And we talked and shared and remembered.
Three generations of ladies.
One amazing day.
