The boys have had a couple weeks of eating their fool heads off - not that they're complaining.
So many projects, so little time!
Then before we knew it it was time to get the kids packed up and head for the airport - what with the earthquakes, hurricane/flooding out east and the fires down in Texas, it was sort of strange to drive down through Nebraska/Iowa and see that they're still recovering from the flooding this spring.
We had fun poking around the Old Market in Omaha - so many neat shops and restaurants.
The kids weren't excited about sushi, so we did the traditional Spaghetti Works for supper, and T and I saved lunch at the Baby Blue Sushi Saki Grill for after their flight left the next day. I had Silly Rabbit and Hot Poppers - Yum!
We wound our way down through KS, stopped off to visit C who's starting her first year at K-State in Manhattan. 111' when we parked the car but it's a dry heat. We wandered the campus until she was out of class, then took her out for supper. One of the prettier campuses I've ever been on - sorry, IU!
We spent the weekend with T's mom, then headed back for SD on Monday morning. Since we weren't (for once) in any particular hurry, we took a few detours on the way.
Early Tuesday a.m. it was back to reality - well, sort of... We helped J work cows - weaning calves and fall vaccinations. I got to gather, but since we ended up using our truck to move the portable corral, I just rode one of their horses. Ended up ponying another, which made things a bit interesting. A lovely way to spend a fall morning! But I was too busy to juggle the camera, so no pictures of that, unfortunately.
