WW: Nebraska City {Linky}

On Sunday I said, "Hey let's take a road trip." We picked up my Dad, and drove 52 minutes to Nebraska City. I've never been there. We actually ran out of time to do all the things we wanted to do, so it seems at though we'll be going back.

We spent most of our time in the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center.

A ship like Lewis and Clark were in:






The oars of the ship. They are not light weight!


Prickly Pear Cacti were in a big spot. That's about the only cacti that grows in Nebraska.


Inside Arbor Day Lodge the boys had fun steering the ship. When they steered it was connected to a game. They had to try and not hit rocks, but collect food. They also got papers that they had to punch. If they got a certain number of punches they got to take it up front to get it embossed with Lewis and Clark.


Animal pelts hung around the building.





Isaak got to pretend canoe.


Mica hung out in their kid sized teepee.


This guy talked to the boys about guns during the time of Lewis and Clark.


He let the boys give the gun a try. Isaak couldn't wait, and Mica chickened out because, "It was too loud!"


We saw an Earth Lodge. Inside we talked to a guy about making arrowheads, and I found a snake skin for Isaak to take home. The guy said, "Ask your Mom." I said, "It was me that told him to ask you."





We ran around a park.

J. Sterling Morton - Founder of Arbor Day.


We're going to go back to see their gigantic treehouse. It was a fun trip!

I saw the first pic and thought you'd built that in your back yard! Ha!

Does your son have a bb gun or an air soft rifle? That will be next! Actually my oldest has these but he doesn't really spend that much time shooting them. He would rather play video games.

It looks like a fun way to learn about the exploration of the west.

A very interesting outing! Those dug out canoes are amazing. Imagine carrying that thing through swamps to get to water. My kids would definitely love a place like this.

Seems like a very educational trip! I bet that canoe was really heavy!

It's a lovely place indeed, Alissa. For sure the boys enjoyed it. I would love to try the gun myself :). I tried it once when I was back home and it was actually interesting..
