Next stop: Iowa!

We were so excited to see my family in Iowa! We had a reunion on Sunday afternoon, which worked out great because Jonathan likes to take a morning nap. Grandpa and Grandma came over to see us that morning. As you can see, the kids didn't sit still very well for their picture. I like this one, though, because of Grandma's smile.

The reunion was at my Uncle Sam and Aunt Linda's house. I love visiting them on their dairy farm! I used to visit a lot when I was younger. I loved going with my aunt and uncle and cousins to softball games (and even playing softball) and going to the county fair. They just expanded their house, so it was a wonderful place for a reunion. My kids had so much fun playing with all of the (second) cousins. Jonathan camped out in this playhouse for a while. He had so much fun.

Here are the kids playing kickball.

My grandparents, Uncle Frank, Uncle Harve, Uncle Stan, and Aunt Linda.

(Almost) the whole gang.

My cousin, Brian, took the kids on tractor rides. Here is Daniel taking his turn. Thanks Brian!

Thanks, everyone, for being there and making it such a special day for us! Thank you Uncle Sam and Aunt Linda for all you did and for hosting!

On Monday, Michael stayed at the house in town with Jonathan, and I took the others to Grandpa and Grandma's house. We went to get them at lunchtime, and Aunt Linda came over too, and we had a wonderful day. We even got Grandpa set up on Facebook. The kids convinced Uncle Frank to drive them around for a long time, and they had so much fun. Thanks Uncle Frank!

That night, we went to dinner at Paradise Pizza. The kids ate a LOT of pizza!
