A Day in Omaha

We were able to spend the day in Omaha today as a family. We ate lunch with some great friends at our favorite Omaha pizza place, Zios! Then we headed over to Children's Hospital with a wagon full of gifts for the 6th floor playroom. Kerstin and McKinsey asked their friends to donate a gift to the hospital at their recent birthday party. Stacy, the child life specialist, was thrilled with all the goodies for the patients.

We were also able to meet up with some other Omaha chums for some kid playtime and adult chit chat.

We finished off the day with a family card party in Lincoln. What a great day of socializing! We are blessed to have such wonderful friends!

Thanks so much for checking on us. Keep Kerstin in your prayers this week as she has to take her Atra meds again. We are hoping that a change in dosage will help the nausea. We do have some new nausea medicine as a back-up plan. God's blessings to you!

Wow! Look at all the cool things you were able to donate to Childrens. It is so nice of both of you girls to think of others on your birthday. I BET they were glad for the toys!! :) Sounds like you had a great day too! We had fun with Hannah's grandparents decorating eggs. Check out the photos link and see if you think Hannah' egg looks like Dr. G. Hope you have a better week with the Attra this time. We'll be checking in and praying that you feel good, Kerstin. :) Sharon
