It’s a long way to travel to trick-or-treat, but it was an opportunity to fit two visits into a trip (and a half). We were over due to visit my sister in Arkansas and Cody’s father in South Dakota. Not exactly in the same direction. My sister’s in-laws were planning to gather over Halloween weekend in Lincoln so she suggested we meet up with them there and then head to Webster from there. And that is what we did. On Friday afternoon, we departed and spent approximately 7 hours in the truck making our way to Lincoln. This was Connie’s longest trip to date…. it’s long for most anyone, but being trapped in a car seat probably makes it less desirable. She did pretty good and only needed to be soothed a couple of times.
Dena and the girls met us at the hotel and we spent the evening watching them ooh and aah over our little angel. The next day we headed to Dena’s brother-in-law’s home. He is the Athletic Director for Nebraska, thus the reason for the meeting in Lincoln. We watched Nebraska lose to Purdue, while Wisconsin came out with a victory. We grazed on snack food and hang out, pretty relaxing day. Later the kids got ready for trick-or-treating. Elsa, Ana, Olaf and the purple monster made their way through the neighborhood scoring generous sugary treats.
The next morning we packed up at got on the road around 7 am to head to Webster–5 hours of drive time ahead of us. Here are pics from our time with the Eichorst’s. These girls love my baby so much and I love witnessing that.
