When my brother Tyson mentioned he was going to be in the states around Christmas this year, my family jumped at the opportunity to spend as much time with him as possible. However, Tyson has been sharing some of his time lately with his girlfriend, Meggan. So they decided to come back and split time between both families...from Florida to Missouri to Nebraska, they will be a very busy couple these next few weeks.
Thankfully, we were able to meet up with them for New Year's Eve in Kansas City. After spending a week and a half in Florida and Missouri, we would then take them back to Nebraska with us. Are you all singing the UPS logistics sound right about now?
Thursday night, we all headed out to 810 Zone sports bar to watch the Huskers in the Holiday Bowl. It wasn't a pretty game, but the conversation and the food was great! The next day, we all enjoyed a leisurely walk around the plaza. It was about 48 degrees and sunny which made for great shopping in the Midwest, in December. That evening, we met Meggan's family and some of Tyson's close friends for dinner at an Italian restaurant called Figlio's. The group split up after that, some went down to the bars on the plaza to ring in the new year and the other half enjoyed the low key vibe in the hotel lounge and watched the ball drop in a much quieter atmosphere. :)
It was really nice to meet Meggan's family. They are such a lovely bunch, very personable and talkative. They reminded me a lot of my family and we all enjoyed each other's company. Can't wait to see them again soon. ;) wink wink.
