Omaha Favorites (so far)

My wife and I have been living in Omaha for a little over a year and I must admit that the town is starting to grow on me. Here are some of my favorite aspects of Omaha

  1. Monday afternoon golfing @ Champion’s w/ Brandon and Scott.
  2. The Metro Golf Championship
  3. Watching Hochevar pitch with the Omaha and KC Royals
  4. the Henry Doorly Zoo
  5. Chicken and bean taco @ Cali Taco, pulled pork sandwich @ Heartland BBQ, & carne asada tacos @ Alvarados.
  6. Schramm State Park and Standing Bear Lake with the pooch
  7. Wenninghoff’s Farm Market
  8. the theater room in our basement
  9. My sister’s summer living with us
  10. 4th of July fireworks in our neighborhood
  11. Concerts—Jim Gaffigan (w/ Ron), the Script (for free), OAR, Mat Kearney (w/ my sisters), DMB (in September w/ my cousins)
  12. Nationwide Tour’s Cox Classic golf tournament
  13. the Sarpy County Fair & Demolition Derby
  14. Home grown fruit and veggies from my wife’s grandma and aunt & uncle.
  15. All of the visitors we’ve had—in-laws, wife’s grandma, aunts & uncles, and cousins, Mich & Gen, and my family.

We have two more years in Omaha, and I hope to make the most of our time out here.
