Come on, we are going for a boat ride!
The dolls are so excited. This is going to be such fun!
Connie, Traveling mini Beth, and Traveling Kirsten all have their life jackets on. Such good girls!
They stand on the rear seat of the boat to wave at everyone. YAY! We are going for a ride!!
Kirsten and mini Beth learn how to steer the boat while it is parked in the slip.
"Hey look at us!! We are driving the boat".
Everyone has their life jackets on, so we are ready to take the boat out on the river.
Here is a view of downtown Omaha, NE from the MIssouri River.
This is a pedestrian bridge that is being built. This bridge will span the Missour River from Omaha, NE to Council Bluffs, IA.
These are some Interstate bridges over the Missouri that go from Iowa to Nebraska.
Kirsten and mini Beth want to pose for some pictures showing them out on the MIssouri River.
There are quite a few boats out today since the weather was sunny and 84 degrees.
Here is the River City Star, it is an excursion boat that travels the Missouri River around the Omaha area.
We get closer to the River City Star since the dollies want to wave to the passengers.
Hello! Hello! Kirsten waves to the people on the big boat.
This is a view of Freedom Park from the Missouri River. The USS Hazard & USS Marlin are docked here.
The USS Hazard was a WWII mine sweeper.
This is an old train bridge that is no longer in use. The bridge tressle on the bank rotates to span the water meeting the bridge in the water.
Another view of this bridge. It rotates to span the water. It was constructed this way to accommodate large ships.
