Trip to Omaha

Derek's friend/old boss from Omaha called him up and asked if he wanted to go to the BYU v Creighton basketball game.  well, obviously the answer was yes.  so derek and i planned a little trip to omaha.  it was good timing because my parents were out for thanksgiving, so they stayed a week longer and took care of our girls.  (thanks a ton!!)  it was so weird being back in omaha.  i love that city!!  it is a great place, and it will always have a place in my heart!  law school was stressful, but such a good time in our lives.  i have very fond memories of that time and place.  it was perfect timing for us to go visit too... allie and mitch were getting ready to move to utah so shauna was there to help with the packing.  anyway, here are a few highlights of our trip.
  • derek went to the byu game.
  • we ate at panera bread (with allie and shauna), star burger, wheatfields (with allie, mitch and shauna), a mexican place i can't remember the name of (with chris and april), and i'm sure there are others i'm forgetting.
  • i went to trader joe's with allie and shauna.
  • derek and i went to a movie... i think it was "the next three days" (we liked it.)
  • when we checked into our hotel room all the regular rooms were taken so we got upgraded to a pent house for the same price as a regular room!!
  • bucky's
  • we visited derek's old office.
  • derek visited his professors and some friends.
it was hilarious... allie and i went to pick up shauna from the airport and the second shauna walked into allie's house she started ripping things off the wall... literally!!!  this was the only pic i took of our whole trip.  oh well!!  it was great spending some alone time together and visiting omaha.  (we missed our girls like crazy though i must admit!!)

Shauna has no shortage of gumption when it comes to getting stuff done. She's a good person to have around! :)

Yes yes better late than never. I still have a long way to go! THanks for coming and hanging out for New Years Eve, I haven't laughed that hard since our last dinner. We MUST do this more often. You girls are growing up so fast, they are so cute and full of personality!

This post makes me sad. I don't know why.
