This is a picture of me and Emma with Emma's cousins in Waynesville, OH. They graciously let us stay the night at their home and fed us a scrumptious dinner and showed us a memorable night on the town.
Here is Emma sitting on a Route 66 couch in the lobby of the Route 66 hotel on Route 66 in Springfield, IL. We didn't actually stay at that hotel, but we stopped there to get a postcard for my little friends, Nick and Clara. The picture doesn't really do it justice, but this lobby had a menagerie of Route 66 stuff including two cars and an oldfashioned gas pump.
This is a picture of Emma's sister-in-law, Emily and her daughter, Catherine at the Henry Dorley Zoo in Omaha, NE. Emily, Catherine, and Emma's brother Chuckie let us spend the night at their home in Omaha. After we spent the night, Emma, Catherine, Emily and I went to the Zoo for a little diversion while I waited for my friend Krista to arrive at the Omaha airport. Emma continued her visit with her family in Omaha, while Krista and I made the rest of the trek from Omaha to Salt Lake City.
I thought this was a terriffic little zoo, and I would definitely go see it a second time if I ever find myself in Omaha again.
