CWS Brings Overnight Guests

Omaha's most popular summer tradition, the College World Series, kicked off on Friday, June 13th. Since hotel rooms are few and far between this time of year, niece Lauren asked noTTafarm to accommodate her and a few friends for a night. Who are we to turn away visitors from foreign lands (in this case maybe only as foreign as Kearney, Nebraska and Mitchell, South Dakota)? The five of them attended two games on Saturday (the 14th) and arrived at noTTafarm at midnight, sunburned and tired. 
Lauren's guests included Vanessa (her sorority little sis), Logan, and Kyle. The boys are big baseball fans and play on the team for Dakota Wesleyan. They were also fascinated by the number of turkeys in the west yard Sunday morning, and were itching for some hunting time. (*Side note:  hunting is not allowed at noTTafarm.)
Lauren also brought along her boyfriend, Dalton! Though they've been dating for several months, this is the first time Scott and I have met him.  We were impressed by his good manners and his willingness to put up with our niece. (Ha!) Dalton plays football at UNK and is a political science major.

They were all out of the house by about 10:30 Sunday morning, heading downtown for two more games. It was fun to have the house full of twenty-somethings, even if for just 12 hours. 
We Love Visitors!
