Living close to family has it's perks! Zach and Amie Houser were kind enough to take our kids for the night and I decided to surprise Paul with a night away. I took him to Plattsmouth, Nebraska, a small town about 35 minutes away from Omaha. We stayed at the Parmele Bed and Breakfast and had a great time just the two of us.
After we checked in we went to dinner at The Sister's Cafe. Two Thai sisters run the restaurant, one married an American and the other married a German. So they serve Thai and German food, odd combo huh! But it was really delicious and given the opportunity we would definitely go back!
After dinner we went to a movie which to most is a basic evening, but to us it was awesome because we never go to movies in the theatre! We saw The Martian and did a little shopping as well.
The next morning after a delicious breakfast we walked around their downtown area which really is well preserved and pretty. We then headed to Nebraska Furniture to order a bed and dresser for Reid and had lunch. It was a nice break before the storm and perfect timing once I realized Paul would be in the bishopric and gone a lot more. I'm glad I made it a surprise, it was hard not to tell him, but it made the weekend much more exciting.
