One of our favorite stops on our drive is to swim in the Platte River in Brady, NE. The Platte crosses just off the Brady exit. The River is shallow so the water is usually warm and the the bed is sandy so the water is clear. We all love it. By the time we get back in the car the kids are usually ready for a good nap too.
Ethan, happy to be out of the car!
The shallow water was just perfect for Ethan. After he calmed down he wasn't scared of the moss either...
And it's Evie's turn to drag the moss around for awhile
Evie, having fun with daddy
Ethan loved grabbing a handful of sand and then he so generously gave me a pinch at a time
We are back in the car and the kids are asleep. Joel and I are enjoying the peace and quite and some beautiful Nebraska roadside.
