after our walks in the woods, we drove south to the twin cities for a weekend of catching up with friends and family, and a rather ridiculous ‘shops we don’t have in new zealand’ spree.  we also visited the betsy-tacy houses in mankato, then drove back down to omaha for a final relaxing week at home with parents and animals.  and not just any old animals… tradition dictates a visit to the zoo at least once during every trip to omaha.  and in spite of what seemed like every elementary school in nebraska being on field trips, we did catch glimpses of a few furries, scalies and featheries.
