Autumn Slechta, 3, climbs on one of the squirrels at Bayliss Park. Autumn and her sister, Harper, 7, are visiting family in Council Bluffs and Carter Lake from Knowles, Wisconsin, a small community inside of Lomira. The girls' mother, Bryanna Slechta, said the family hasn’t been to Council Bluffs since Harper was 8 months old. Seeing the area again brought nostalgia to Bryanna Slechta, who showed her daughters where she grew up and went to school. The family visited downtown Council Bluffs, Union Pacific Railroad Museum and Bayliss Park on Thursday.
