Road Trip/Day 3 - July 23rd - Destination = Omaha, NE

My run in Lexington, Nebraska, was quite miraculous.  I started my run with 2 shoes filled with toilet paper and I finished WITH the toilet paper. I ran past corn fields and some beautiful neighborhoods.  I met a nice Asian man that didn't speak English.  Somehow, I talked him into taking a picture of me in front of the corn.  People in Nebraska are so nice.

I ran back to the Holiday Inn Express to wake the kids up for their run.  They cried the whole time.  "It's hot.  It's humid.  I'm tired."  
They seemed fine once we got back to the All-You-Can-Eat Breakfast buffet and the pool!

Ian was the King of the Day.  What a king he made!!  He was a dictator!

For some reason, we all thought it would be fun to go shopping at Goodwill, which was right next door to our hotel.  Who goes on a road trip and chooses to go to a thrift store for hours?  The Hebers do!  We loaded up on school clothes and Ian tried on a bra.  It was quite exciting!

Next we headed to WalMart to ride the horses and try on random hats.  Can you tell we were trying to waste time?

 To add a little more excitement to our day, we headed to the Heartland Museum of Military Vehicles.  What an adventure!!

 After spending lots of time with the artillery, we walked to the gift shop, where they were selling Bee Pollen.  The workers claimed that bee pollen gets rid of allergies, increases sex drive and works like a steroid.  I thought we'd better try it.  You can see the kids' reactions below:

 The bee pollen tasted like horse hay and made us all very thirsty.  My muscles just appear more lopsided.  I don't think that bee pollen had any positive effects on the Heber family.

After pumping ourselves up on bee pollen, we headed off to Omaha, Nebraska, to visit Cousin Susan.  We stopped at Spaghetti Works for dinner.  Kids eat FREE there.  Absolutely amazing deal.  Of course, I had to have ANOTHER gluten free salad.  Dinner ended with lots of TOOTS.

Man you rock those knee-highs. Is that in case the toilet paper runs out?

Reuben, I have used gloves when I'm out of toilet paper, but NEVER, EVER plan to use the calf sleeves/knee-highs. I like them way to much to waste them on a wipe!
