The goal of visiting Omaha was going to the supposed best zoo in the world. We arrived there at 10:30am and left at 4:15pm, shortly before they closed at 5pm. It's great having the GPS to navigate us around, and we had no issues getting there or back to the hotel.

I spoke at a wonderful ladies' luncheon at Ryan's Bistro, 176th and Center, featuring some of Omaha's best business and volunteer leaders. My mother, Gloria Dinsdale, wife Dawn, daughter Alison, and many others ...
