Beautiful as they may be, the mountains cannot compete (in my heart) with the prairie. The tall grass and sweeping, calm sunsets...the thunderstorms with big, fat rain...the Platte River. The Platte River.
It's hard not to love. Also, now that we have an almost two year old in tow, it is SO SO SO nice to have a bunch of family around to keep an eye on her. She is literally jumping down flights of stairs one minute and begging to be held the next, so I have never been more thankful to have lots of helping hands around to keep her occupied.
Right now, Andrew is busy choreographing ANYTHING GOES at my old stomping ground (he never stops) and I'm so excited to see the "final" product on Monday. This weekend is supposed to be cooler (please! anything under 99 degrees!) and we hope to spend some more time with my middle brother Evan and his wife Emily (with whom Lua is OBSESSED). On Wednesday, we leave Nebraska for a bit more of the Midwest - Wisconsin! I'm glad that our adventures get to continue and that we will be surrounded by even more family :) When we get back to the city, we have a month to pack up all our stuff, get it into storage and get ready for our biggest and final trip - CANADA! More to come on that soon! For now, I am trying to just slow down and enjoy the good life ;)
Hope you have a fun and safe Labor Day!
