Iowa Family Vacation - Part 1

As I said when I first started this blog, there would be times I would be too busy to make a post, so there are a couple posts that I still need to make of our August adventures. Our Iowa family vacation is one of them.

My parents are both from small towns in eastern Iowa, so in early August we took the entire family back to check out their stomping grounds. And of course...Wy-man had to be in the truck with the big boys! Our first stop was the fort in Ft. Madison, Iowa...right on the banks of the muddy Mississippi. And man was it steamy that day, but we didn't let that stop us.
Wy-man hung with "Uncle Seph" (Uncle Seth)...
And cousin Will hung with Uncle Mike.
Walking the path with Papa as also a hit!Even "Baby Gook" (Baby Luke) enjoyed the fort with Ashley. The boys thought the canons were pretty cool...
And hung onto Papa's every word.
The fort even had reenactments and was really a great experience. But best of all, we were even able to get a decent family photo in ONE try!
Thanks Mimi and Papa for sharing a little bit of where you grew up with us!
