To celebrate my brother's birthday, we went to Nebraska City last night where my other brother has been all week for job training. It was absolutely beautiful. This is where the founder of Arbor Day lived, and trees stretched as far as the eye could see.
We had a wonderful dinner at The Lied Lodge , then took a long walk through the trees where we saw deer, rabbits, and birds. The Canopy Tree House wasn't open last night, but I have every intention of going back to take my daughter to it. She absolutely loved seeing all the animals and exploring nature. I also want to go back so that I can go inside the Arbor Lodge. We were able to walk to it and see the outside. It's surrounded by a beautiful park of trees, a fish pond, and a gazebo.
When I was growing up, I always despaired of the fact that I lived in Nebraska. I always thought it was so darn boring. But since I've moved to the eastern part of the state and become involved with the Nebraska State Historical Society, I've discovered that Nebraska is not boring at all. We have some truly wonderful treasures here in our state. I'm starting to explore those treasures more and more, and it's really opening my eyes to a lot of my state's history.
