A day trip to Omaha

I went on a day trip to Omaha.  It was unplanned.  My mom asked if I’d go with her to check on a house she was renting out.  The tenants left a few months back and we weren’t sure what condition they left the home.  I am trying to remember the last time I was there and I think it was in the fall of 2012 for a memorial service for my mother-in-law.

Omaha is where I graduated high-school, and went to college, and met my husband, and it’s where my parents lived when they first came in the US.  I lived there for only 5 years, but it feels like home.  I have to admit I have a few places I call home.  I left Omaha in 2002 after I graduated from college and got married.  My husband is from there, but I don’t think he shares my feelings about the place.  He does not like it.

I have many many many good friends who still live in Omaha and I keep in touch regularly.  If my recent trip wasn’t only for a day I would have like to catch up in person with my friends there.  But since I work for an airline and getting there in/out in one day is not terribly difficult, I may do this day trip to Omaha again soon.

Here is a few photos I snapped, mostly as I drove around.
