Iowa Trip

My great-great aunt Be passed away on January 27th and we traveled down to Iowa for her funeral two weekends ago.  She was 104 and lived a wonderful life, and now I am sure she is smiling down from Heaven!

This is part of my mom’s side of the family…Steve, Melissa, and their three boys Nate, Matthew, and Isaac, my parents, grandparents, and us 🙂

Trying to get these 3 boys in a picture together while they are all smiling and looking at the camera is nearly impossible!

Every time we go to Iowa, we ALWAYS go to my uncle Dave’s pizza place and it never fails to disappoint! It is hands down my favorite pizza…although I was disappointed this time because somehow I ended up at the wrong end of the table and had the supreme pizza in front of me and the kids had direct access to the pepperoni that is my favorite.  Well, lesson learned…I will always position myself better 🙂

Bob was happy with a beer in one hand and dessert in the other!

One awesome thing we saw were about 10 bald eagles that were just chilling by the dam at the river.  Some were just perched in the trees and others were fishing!

It was so neat!

We also went to Isaac’s basketball game on Saturday morning….the kiddos were SO cute!

Their team lost…but it was still fun to watch!

Matthew loves basketball so while the littles were warming up he took a few shots too

We had a great time, but were exhausted by the time we came home because the kiddos kept us busy!
