Vacation 2009, Part 1

We had a great vacation! We took 2 weeks off, borrowed my parents RV, and set off with no clear plans set in place other than our ultimate destination being Yellowstone National Park.

We took off Monday, July 27, 2009 from our mid-Missouri home and headed north. We drove most of the day and arrived in Omaha, NE in the early evening. We managed to find a decent camp ground that didn’t require a call-ahead or reservations. That night we spent relaxing around the campfire and teaching Ian how to not burn marshmallows!

Tuesday, July 28, 2009 we went to the Henry Doorly Zoo and Train Museum in Omaha, NE. We did a lot of walking that day! I took tons of pictures at the zoo and we had a great time. We didn’t spend much time at the train museum since we got there a half hour before it closed and I didn’t take any pictures while we were there but it was still neat to visit it.

Back at our camp ground we sat around the campfire again eating marshmallows. There was an interesting bike sculpture at the entrance of the camp ground. The place was actually part of a biking and walking park. There were also baseball & soccer fields nearby. Ian had fun on the nice playground and we just enjoyed ourselves!
