After being asleep for a good portion of our Saturday (I caught a flu bug from Chris), I tried to get us out and about today. We got up and went to our normal Mass time and Alivia to Sunday School (it is so weird having only 2 kids during Mass!). Then, it was off to the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge. It is a pretty bridge, and it is easy to walk on. It would have been nice to be a little wider, as there tends to be traffic jams of bikes, strollers, etc. We started on the Nebraska side and walked to the Iowa side. I was hoping for a beautiful little park on the Iowa side, but I was disappointed. There was a park, but this park is not used to the foot traffic it is now getting from the bridge. Let's just say, go potty BEFORE making your way to the bridge. Back on the Nebraska side, there was a little teepee the kids liked playing in. It was a fun family walk, and it could go miles away from the bridge, too. Hopefully, in the years to come, we will see more things to do on both sides of the bridge. For now, it was just fun to walk over the water and enjoy the view!
After a quick lunch, the little kiddos took their nap while Alivia, Daddy and I planted 40 tulips...something to look forward to come spring (other than spring that is).
