On The Road
It was a beautiful day! All day long the entire sky was filled with these clouds. It sprinkled a couple of times but nothing really stuck. These big white beautiful clouds filled the whole sky! What’s nice about being on the road in this part of the country is that you can actually see the whole sky! It was breathtaking!
When we were passing through Kearney we decided to stop at the Great Platte River Road Archway. There is a cool museum inside and the girls were thrilled, fascinated and intrigued by ALL of IT. We got to put on head sets and while we walked through each part of the museum across the bridge there was a story being told about the history of our pioneers who made their way across this land so many years ago.
Inside the museum there was a lot to see and do. The girls met some interesting characters. Kinsley was happy to give this mountain man a flower that she picked outside the complex. I think his heart melted when she presented him with it and he stuck it in his hat.
Outside on the iron bridge the girls got to feed the fish.
We had a lot of fun yesterday. The hotel where we are staying at has a swimming pool that is open 24/7. They have a manager’s party in the evening from 5pm to 7pm where you can have snacks, beer, and/or white wine for FREE. In the morning breakfast is until 9:30am and it is FREE. I think we timed this trip just right because the Nebraskaland Days and the 2010 Buffalo Bill Rodeo is going on right now so I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can see! But for now I think the only thing the girls want to do is grab some lunch and SWIM all afternoon! Who can blame them?
