We swam for a while and then took a break to eat pizza and check out the fitness room :) After we had digested we headed back to the pool and swam some more.
Then it was back up to the room for a little TV time, lots of giggling and some pretty good storytelling :) We finally settled down around midnight but were back up and going by 7:15 Saturday morning. After breakfast we headed back to the pool (that was the favorite place) and swam until lunchtime. Then we got dressed for the day and headed to the mall while we waited for Pam, Ellie and Joyce to arrive.
When they got there we got all ready and headed to the Old World Market to check out the shops and restaurants before the play started. It was a beautiful evening and everyone was so excited for the play to start.
The big moment finally arrived and we headed to the Theater. It was beautiful inside and the play was amazing! It lasted almost three hours but it didn't seem like it. Olivia made it through 3/4ths of it before she dozed off. The rest of us lasted through the whole thing.
We got back to the hotel around 11pm and got ready to go swim (again) but the pool had been taken over by a big, mostly drunk frat party. We ended up in the lobby eating popcorn and drinking pop. Then we went back to our rooms and watched TV and played for a while. We were in bed with lights out by 1am. Sunday morning it was up and to the pool one last time before checking out.
After we left the hotel we went to the zoo for a few hours and had lunch. The kids enjoyed the train ride around the zoo.
They also had fun seeing the gorillas and the new lion cubs. It was 70 degrees when we left Omaha and headed home. By the time we got back to Hendricks it was rainy and 40. Welcome home :)
It was a great weekend and the kids had so much fun being together and hanging out. From the sounds of things, Michael and the boys had fun too. They went to the rodeo and the boys helped Michael at the feedlot. Two of the boys ended up falling in the nasty mess out there but it didn't slow them down. They got to stay up late and watch movies and sleep out in the living room.
This morning was tough getting up and moving for everyone! Just a sign that we all had a good time!
