Korey had the day off yesterday and was kind enough to spend it with us. It was a pretty nice day so he came over around noon, and we walked the 5k paved path around the small lakes in the park. This is such a nice community park. I sure enjoyed seeing these daffodils.
One of the perks to this lifestyle is that we get to experience spring a couple of times. We saw some beautiful spring flowers in Texas and many of the trees had sprouted leaves. As we drove through Oklahoma we saw many red bud trees as well as some daffodils and tulips. In Kansas and Nebraska the trees do not have leaves yet, but some spring flowers are in bloom. Once we get back to Wisconsin, it will probably be a few weeks before we see spring flowers.
After a brisk walk, we sat outside and enjoyed the weather for a while. Then we picked up Cathryn (she had class during the day) and they took us to Creighton University so we could see where she is doing her graduate work. Here’s the happy couple outside of the main building she spends most of her time at.
Creighton is a private Catholic college. They have a beautiful church on campus.
The campus is near downtown Omaha so we went to dinner at a The Upstream Brewing Company in the heart of town. It looks like it is in a converted warehouse building with brick walls. Omaha has done a nice job of revamping their inner city. There is an area called Old Market with lots of shops and restaurants that looks like a busy and trendy area. We had a good dinner and Kevin enjoyed the wheat beer.
Today the weather has really turned nasty. Highs were only in the low 40s with lots of rain and wind. Unfortunately, the rest of the week looks like it will be cold, but the rain is supposed to stop on Thursday. Korey and Cathryn are busy today, but have invited us over for dinner tomorrow night.
Korey found out last year that he has Celiac disease, so they will be cooking some gluten free dishes for us. I’m looking forward to trying some new recipes.
