This past weekend we headed over to Omaha to go to Nebraska furniture mart (a HUGE furniture store) to do a little shopping. We go every year around the beginning of May. The first day we are there is the "shopping day" and the second day is the "zoo day"...or as the kids put it the "fun day".
This year we only bought a kitchen table which seats 6. An upgrade from our present kitchen table which seats only 4 (someone always has to sit in a folding chair). I tried very hard to "steer" my husband into other sections of the furniture store but he was like a bull on a mission to leave with eyes pointed only at the door. Oh well...maybe next year.
The second day we went to visit the Omaha Zoo. It is a fantastic zoo that you could easily spend all day there. All the kids had a great time and by the end of the weekend we came home all worn out. And for this busy family of 6...that's a really good thing.
