Tessa's 2nd Birthday in Nebraska

We love going to Nebraska to see my family each year. This year we had to do it before Tessa couldn't fly for free anymore and before our little guy came, so we went over Tessa's 2nd birthday. It was beautiful weather and so much fun. On her birthday we went to the Lincoln children's petting zoo with Grandma and Grandpa Olson. Then that night we went to my aunt Barb's house with my cousins to celebrate. It's so nice to see all of our relatives! I miss seeing my family so much and wish we all lived closer.

The Petting Zoo

Tessa loved this zoo because she got to pet some bugs, ride the train, and see lots of cute little animals.
Ready to start our day!
Thanks Grandma Sue and Grandpa for such a fun day

She thought these giant eggs were pretty cool

We walked across the street to this beautiful garden that had flowers everywhere! It was so pretty.

She kept stopping to smell each flower

My sweet aunt Barb put together a little party at her house for us all to get together. We had pizza, cupcakes, and lots of presents. We wish Abby and Amanda could have made it, but it was still fun to see everyone.

Everyone was so thoughtful to get Tessa birthday presents.
Barb went a little out of control but that's why we love her!

Getting a little help from Grandpa and Paige was needed
More presents! Tessa was loving it

I have to say this candy necklace was probably her favorite present of all!
She thought it was so cool.
Tessa thinks Nick is so funny and just loves him, but she definitely makes him keep his distance! I don't know what it is with her and guys...

On the plane ride home

Tessa had her last free plane ride. She definitely got use out of flying for free under 2 though.
I think she got about 5 round trips in
