:LIFE: Photos from day 1 of Omaha vacation...

A little late in coming, I know, but it's been pretty busy lately and I've been under the weather with a pretty severe cold and sore throat the past couple of days. However, it's hard to sleep for 24 hours straight even when you feel like it, so it gave me a little time to hang out on the couch and do some photo editing. :-)

Here are a few favorite photos highlighting the different things we did on day one.

First we hit the Omaha Children's Museum. They were hosting the Central Art Car Exhibit in the parking lot and we had a lot of fun looking at all the crazy cars.

This car was a little 'beachy'. There was also one covered with with pieces of tires that made it look like a dinosaur, one covered entirely with bottle caps, a truck painted with chalkboard paint and more. Kaitlin was sure to leave her mark...her name and signature heart.

Inside there were all kinds of games, activities and exhibits to explore. That's Justin and Kaitlin in the middle.

The robotic dinosaur exhibit upstairs was pretty amazing. Wouldn't want to be anywhere near one of these in real life.

The it was on to Bass Pro Shops...I knew we wouldn't get away with a trip to Omaha without having to make a stop there.

Justin and Kaitlin thought they should give the camping equipment a test run.

Then they tested their shooting skills...

After getting her very own pink BPS hat with a fish hook for the bill just like Daddy, she decided to take him on in a game of giant checkers.

After relaxing in our hotel for a bit, we went to the Heartland of America Park and enjoyed a walk all the way around the lake. We took a boat ride around as well.

To finish off the evening, we went to the Old Market and Kaitlin got a caricature. We had a late supper at Spaghetti Works and our little girl fell asleep at the table after two pieces of cheese pizza.

It was a long first day...but a good one!
