First stop on "The Cousin Fest!"
We've had 2 great visits with my cousin Julie Byers Smith and will stop one more time today before we leave tomorrow and head for Omaha/Waterloo. We talk all the time via Facebook but it's so nice to visit in person.
Of course I had to stop by Husker Nation while I was in town.....you can take the girl out of Nebraska but you can't stop her from watching the Huskers and cheering from afar!
We've also had fun trying out different restaurants while we were here and best of all got to have dinner with Teresa and Jim Vetter. Teresa's mom and dad, Irene and Kenny Nelson, were good friends with my folks, Patty and Kenny Barada, and Teresa and I were besties in school. We picked up right where we left off 60+ years ago and had such a great visit and so much fun catching up.
