What a great weekend I had and I am looking forward to a busy but fun week ahead! 

The kids and I went to Fontenelle Forest in Bellevue Sunday afternoon to see the Dino Quest exhibit.


We love this place because it is close enough to home to spend the afternoon, the boardwalk is easy to navigate, and there is plenty of shade. 




The dinosaur models are well done and educational by having display boards for each display and our incorporated into the boardwalk area . 



We ran out of time playing in the outdoor interactive areas so we will have to go back to do the hands on activities in the downstairs children’s area. 


I am always impressed by how friendly the staff is as well;  they always smile and greet everyone.  The facility is open everyday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and the trails are open dawn to dusk.  Please check out their website to view some of the great pictures of this great place. 

The Plattsmouth High School Blue Devils are hosting Norris High School Friday night at 7:00 p.m. at the High School Football Field.  So come on out to cheer them on and get the football season going right! Speaking of PHS football teams, my classmate David Schneider is organizing a reunion of the State Finals Football Team of 1981 for October 1st.  This reunion includes the classes of 1980, 1981, and 1982 and will be held at the Eagles.  I will get more details in a future column-I think it is a great idea and am looking forward to attending. 

We are coming up on King Korn Karnival, September 10, 11th, and 12th with a variety of activities.  Please note the grand parade is on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.  My son will be walking with the Tiger Scouts for the first time so this should be really fun!   Make sure you check out all of the children’s activities, the Kiddie Parade, the Beautiful Baby contest, and the Little Miss and Master Pageant.   And of course, my favorite, Terry Little’s coffeehouse.    Check out the website,   to download the flyer with all the information.

The library’s production of “Our Town” is still trying to fill a couple of male parts that are small, it is a flexible rehearsal schedule, and a great cast.  Please call 296-4154 if you are interested in participating in this classic show of small town America.

So enjoy the pictures of our walk through the Forest and have a great week-please email me with any items you would like included at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
