Many of you haven't been to Lincoln I'm sure. It's an hour from Omaha. It's the capitol of Nebraska. While I'm not into politics, the capitol of every state is usually super pretty! They have all the Husker games there. I'm not into football either. I do like their museums, and art scene.
We spent most of our time in the Nebraska History Museum, which was so cool + it was free!
They had a display of really old puppets. Some may call them creepy, but I liked them.
Puppeteer: Geore Churley:
He was my favorite puppet.
Meet Kalamity Kate:
She was in the puppet show. She had crazy interesting hair!
There were president sculptures there. No Bush Jr., Obama, or Trump there yet. Who's your favorite president?
They had old clothing on display. I wish we'd go back to dresses and bonnets.
The Haymarket is the place to go in Lincoln. This is back in 1987.
There was a section with farm tools, machines, and fences. I just liked this image of the barbwire fence.
Kool-Aid was first made in Hastings, Nebraska. I can't stand the drink myself. It tastes like sugar water to me. Others love it. They actually have a colored fountain in Hastings, and an event called Kool-Aid Days once a year.
If the puppets didn't creep you out maybe these masks will. I like Elsie the cow, but Joan Crawford is a bit disturbing.
This is an old school house desk.
They were having a little too much fun at this point. Meaning they were pushing each other's buttons.
We took them outside to walk around. I swear I posted these photos, but couldn't find them. Sorry if they are repeated.
One way the wrong way.
