Seeing Sights

September 11th, 2020 by Aubri

August 10: We wanted to have the chance to show our cousins around Omaha a little bit before they headed back to Texas. The morning we had planned to go out it seemed we might have to cancel the days activities when we were quite unexpectedly hit with a small part of a derecho.

The wind storm came out of no where while we were eating breakfast. Living in Nebraska we’re used to wind, high wind, but this was unlike anything I’d ever seen. It was suddenly dark outside, then that wind! It was crazy. When I realized Phil had gone out for a bike ride and taken Abel and Ephraim with him I was really worried. Thankfully a few minutes after it hit we saw him come riding as hard as he could against the wind toward the house, Ephraim running ahead of him. I was thankful he’d taken the bike and bike trailer and not gone out running with the stroller, I don’t think he could have gotten that thing home.

The storm only lasted 10-15 minutes then it let up. The sun came back out so we decided we’d attempt our outing after all.

I knew they would really enjoy seeing St. Cecilia’s Cathedral. The scale and beauty of it are worth it even with all these kids.

Afterward we picnicked and took a walk on the Pedestrian bridge which stretches over the Missouri River so the babies could stand in Nebraska and Iowa at the same time. It turned out to be a lovely day with the cousins, we’re so glad they came to see us!
