This past weekend, Grandpa Jim and Grandpa Jay came into town for a “Guys Father’s Day Weekend”. When four generations of Hennigs get together, you know it’s gonna be epic!
Saturday morning, they went with Matt and Alex to Omaha. They started their trip with a visit to the Strategic Air & Space Museum between Omaha and Lincoln. The guys got to see the planes and other exhibits and enjoy Alex’s antics.
Here are two fellas with the “right stuff”!
Alex has had enough…
After all that fun, the fearless four wanted to sample that other Omaha staple: steaks! So, a trip to Piccolo Pete’s was in order. It’s a steakhouse that has been around since the 30’s, and has a fun, retro vibe to it. According to the waitress (and backed up by the photos of him with Bill Gates), it’s also one of Warren Buffet’s favorite places to eat in town.
So, we know the guys had a good time on Saturday, but what exactly was Alexis doing in an empty house? Here is your answer.
Sunday came and we were able to spend a little time with the grandpas before they left for Chicago. We’re so glad they all got to spend a special weekend together – four generations is really something to celebrate!
This is very, very late on the tail end of Father’s Day 2009…Here’s to dads everywhere. Their influence and importance can’t be overstated. We’re lucky in our family to have a collection of great dads!
Just kidding, but Alex loves to play the ShapeBuilder game on my iPhone. Best $0.99 spent in quite some time, it keeps him busy when I am shopping or trying to do something else. It’s very cool!
Saturday, I did the wus version of Dam-to-Dam, known as the 5K run. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it. I managed to take one pic with my phone as I was leaving. It was the 30th anniversary, so they had a lot of people, just under 10,000 total who participated in both the 20K and 5K. The 20K is cool because it starts up at the Saylorville Dam and goes into the city. You can see the skyline as you run towards downtown. I hope to try it next year, but I will need to actually get out and run more than once or twice a week.
