As you know, we spent a lot of the summer traveling. First to NJ, then San Diego and Chicago, and then back home for a few weeks. Like we did last year though, we drove up to Omaha for Labor Day.

On our way, we stopped in Nebraska City, and then at an orchard we passed.

We went to the Storm Chasers games – they are a minor league team that feed into the Royals so a couple players we knew were playing when we were there.

And then there were fireworks.

In the morning, we went to the Omaha Labor Day Parade. It’s pretty fun and the walkers throw candy which makes it more exciting! The wildfires in the northwest were going on that day, and as we sat there, everything got more and more yellow! You can totally tell in the photos too.

Looks like the eclipse!

After the parade, we headed back home to Kansas! Have you ever been to Omaha?
