Belle, Bucket, Biscuit (just trying that name out, it was Belle's idea...) and I went to my little sister's wedding in Iowa last weekend. Iowa is very far away! It took a shuttle ride, a ferry ride, a hotel stay, a bus ride, two airplane rides, and an hour and a half car ride to get to my dad's house. Whew! It was worth it! I have tons of pictures and we got to see tons of family.
I'm just going to post a couple of the photos because I may never get around to sorting and posting from the trip!

Perhaps I will find time later this week to tell you about the 95 degrees (we are now accustom to 55 degree summers,) the pouring rain, and the almost tornado that thankfully did not steal my sister's joy but made for a memorable wedding, eating snapping turtle and frog legs, feeding great grandpa's deer, holding a squirrel, and cat fishing...
It is always an adventure with my family!
