Oh Sweet Nebraska

We recently got home from our trip back to Nebraska to visit Bret's family. We have been blessed to see the mediate family members within the last 9 months, due to our little Mr. arriving, but we were very excited to see the other family and friends. I was nervous about Dane on the flight, but thankfully he did just fine. Here we are being silly on the plane. The toughest part about flying with a 9 month old is keeping him busy in the 12 inch seats. :)
We went over the 4th of July, and stayed about a week. It was so nice to catch up with family, have Dane meet family and friends for the first time, and relax. I have visited Nebraska numerous times with Bret to see the family, but this was the first time in the summer. Boy- Nebraska is so green and beautiful! It looks much better in these summer months than in does in the winter! The weather was hot and humid... I have become used to the heat, being a native from AZ, but the humidity was something hard to get used to. To escape the heat, we did alot of swimming- which Dane loved!
To celebrate the 4th, we swam in the day with Uncle Jesse, Aunt Tami, cousins Jace and Jack. After swimming, we went to Omaha to a friend's house for a BBQ. Thanks to Sara and Blake for inviting us over!
After the 4th, we headed to the farm to spend time with Bret's dad Royce. Royce is growing aronia berries. Aronia berries are up and coming- and are filled with tons of anti-oxidents! The land of the family farm is breath-taking, and I can't wait for Dane to create memories and experiences there, that we can't offer him in Az.
We also had time to take some family pictures. The backdrop couldn't have been more perfect! Thanks Royce for hosting!
What an awesome week! Thank you everyone for showing us a great time! We love and miss you all like crazy! Hope to see you soon! :)
