Grandma and Grandpa Butikofer came and visited us this weekend. They are on their way to visit Aunt Julie in Nashville and stopped half way to spend a couple of nights with us. They got here on Friday night and Saturday morning we were off visiting historical sites and museums until 8:00 that evening. I must say, Grandma and I were pretty worn out by the end of the day, but Grandpa wished we had more time to explore. We visited the Union Pacific Railroad Museum, Winter Quarters visitor center, Kansville Tabernacle, and the Garner Cemetery. Justin and I have lived in Omaha a year and hadn't been to any of these places so it was great to finally go! Sunday we went to church together and then they were off. It was so nice to have them here, we were definitely sad to see them go. My eyes started to water as they drove off, I blame it on being pregnant, but everyone knows how easily I cry. We loved having family stay with us. Everyone is always welcome to stay here anytime, we love visitors. Justin's family is coming up the first part of August and we are excited to have them!

Kim! What a surprise to see that you found us. Ava is beautiful and you guys look like you are doing great. I am so excited for your new little one. It is so much fun to have a little buddy for your oldest. Soon enough they will be best buds. I read your blog and the whole tornado thing sounds horrible. How did you get Ava back to bed after that. Man, my kiddo's would have been up all night after that. Well, I will keep in touch with you to check up on all the exciting stuff that is happening in your life. Isn't blogging the best. It is really the best way to find old friend and keep in touch with them.
