Midwest is Best | Our Latest Trip to Hom[aha]

The main reason for taking a trip to Omaha was for a friend's wedding, but we also took some time to see other friends and family. It was a fantastic trip, though it was a quick one. Everyone was very excited to see us Ella, and we had a great time.

Mike, Ella & I ready for the wedding!

Congrats to the newlyweds, Lindsay and Matt!

Beautiful wedding cake!

My wine:water ratio just might have been 3:1

Dennis & Marie came to Omaha to babysit Ella while Mike and I went to the reception. 
I think everyone had a great time!

Wedding festivities wore her out!

Post-wedding snacks with Kate :)

While we were in town, Ella got to meet Auntie Molly!

We later had a BBQ with a bunch of friends, but apparently we were having too much fun to take a picture.

Riding a Blue Bike. No training wheels!

After a few days in Omaha, we took a quick trip to Corning and spent some time with family we hadn't seen since Christmas.

Four generations! 

 Getting home was quite the adventure. My brother gave us a ride back to the Lincoln airport with the perfect amount of time until our flight. We made it through security, only to find out that our flight was delayed. Then it was delayed again. And again. It finally came to the point that we were going to miss our connection in Chicago, and that would be the last flight of the day into State College. Rats. 

So Ella and I hung out while Mike talked with the United ticketing agent to get a new plan to get home.

We ended up renting a car minivan and driving to Omaha to catch a flight to Detroit and then onto State College. Despite a slight delay in Detroit due to lightning, we finally made it home just before midnight. Whew!

We had such a fun trip; it was great to see so many fun friends and family. A big thank you to everyone who drove us, fed us, or met up with us. We can't wait to see you all again!
