Recap: Lincoln, Nebraska

Recap: Lincoln, Nebraska

My future brother-in-law and sister-in-law got married this past weekend in Lincoln, NE. While Nebraska wasn’t a state I was dying to go to, I still looked forward to visiting a new place especially since I needed a break from school.

Instead of giving you a day by day look into what I did, I decided to upload some of my favorite pictures from the trip. Let’s see what Kim was up to this past weekend.

Coming from the Rio Grande Valley, and currently living in Austin, TX, I don’t really own any winter clothing. Since I wanted to play in the snow, Josiah’s mom let me borrow her coveralls. The coveralls kept me dry in the snow as I made snowballs, sled, and even rolled in the snow.

Patrick, one of Josiah’s brothers, DIY a cardboard sled after multiple places in Lincoln were sold out of sleds. Honestly, I don’t know how stores sold out of sleds since it tends to snow in Nebraska.

Yes, Josiah is wearing my scarf in this photo.

For the past month, I had been looking at the weather app to see if I would be able to make it to Lincoln. I had a mandatory 6 p.m. class on Monday, and if I missed the course, I couldn’t graduate. Thankfully, the weather app said it wouldn’t be too bad, and I was able to go. I don’t think I had ever seen a pine cone attached to a tree especially one covered in snow.

One of my goals was to throw a snowball at someone. I aimed at Josiah, but missed, unfortunately.

Speaking of snowballs, I somehow managed to get a perfect shot of Josiah hitting his younger brother Dallas in the side of the head. I am currently jealous of Josiah’s perfect aim.

As many of you know, I love to instigate. I paid Josiah’s brother Patrick $50 to sled in shorts. I lost $50, but it was worth every dollar.

I regretted this right after the photo was taken. I didn’t wear any gloves, so my hands were freezing. I made my snow angel, and it was painful.

David and Ali, Josiah’s brother and sister-in-law, got married in a barn in the property of the bed and breakfast we were staying in for the trip. The room I was staying at overlooked the barn, so all I ever saw was snow. The owner told me that the room had the best view, but it looked better once the warm season arrived.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get the many photos at the wedding. I was too busy stuffing my face with M&Ms and hot chocolate. One of the photos that I did get was of Ali, the bride, Ellora and Tabitha, Josiah’s sisters, and myself. As you can see in the photo, it is not the best photo, but it will do.

This past weekend had its highs and lows, but I managed to forget about school for a little bit. While I enjoyed my time in the snow, I will probably not be visiting any cold place anytime soon.

Thank you next, snow.

    My Dad was from Lincoln and I remember all of his stories of a lot of snow! It looks like it was a lot of fun, and having a break from school is always a good thing!
