So, without further ado . . . let's go!
Andrew was a complete champ on both the flight to and from Omaha. We were fortunate enough that he drifted off to sleep right before takeoff and then slept for nearly the entire flight, waking 30 minutes before landing for a bottle and socializing with other passengers.
When we got to the hotel Andrew also settled in, deciding that king size beds are the best.
Our first stop after the hotel was to my grandma's place. She was so happy to finally meet Andrew, and I do believe that the feeling was mutual!
We were prepared for some pretty cold weather in Omaha, but instead were pleasantly surprised by the warm weather. In fact, the weekend was warmer in Omaha than it was in Phoenix. How funny! Since the weather was so spectacular we spent Saturday at the zoo, along with half of the city.
Later we went back to the hotel for some rest. Andrew really enjoys reading his book in bed.
Later we took my grandma for dinner at her favorite steakhouse in celebration of her 99th birthday, then returned to her apartment for more visiting. Andrew really likes to get comfortable and strip down for his play sessions. He had such a great time with this little singing and dancing dog.
Towards the end of our visit Andrew was even able to meet my grandma's 97 year old baby sister . . . and Andrew's great, great aunt. She was thrilled to meet Andrew, but commented that he was "built like a brick chicken coop". Yeah, I was confused too, but apparently she didn't want to be rude and say he was built like a brick shithouse.
