Summer in Iowa

Well, this was a first for us. We were actually able to go to Iowa during a month where there was not snow in the forecast! However, August is waaaay hotter in Iowa than I would have ever guessed! But, we did have a great time. Jason and the boys drove up on a Friday while I was on a retreat, and then I met them on Sunday and we all drove back together on Tue night. Jason and the boys got to spend time with Grandma Mildred, and then we all stayed with Wilbur (Jason's Dad) on Sunday-Tuesday at the lake in his camper. It was great!

We were right on the edge of the lake and it was so beautiful. Don't tell Jason, but it makes me want to buy a camper and spend lots of time lakeside! Oh well, maybe in a few years. There was lots of fishing done, a nature hike that didn't last very long due to whiny humans, bike riding, and s'mores. It was a very good, relaxing trip.

I just love this series of pics, Papa just couldn't stop blinking...but check out Carson's face in every one-that child cracks me up!

The fave sport of the weekend was fishing. Dalton fished his little heart out. He caught 14 fish! Carson tired of fishing pretty quickly (I don't blame him). They did ride their bikes alot, and Carson started practicing some stunt riding. (I am thinking I would have preferred him to take a little more to fishing)

If you look closely, this is a picture of a beehive. And if you look even closer you can see a fishing line caught up in that tree right beside the beehive. Needless to say, the bees were not happy! But, it was an opportunity to see an actual beehive!
