4th of July

Doesn't she look like she should be in a Christmas play? She's ready for her haircut with the cape on and frisbee on her head, of course.

Lunch time, with the new haircut. I am still getting used to it. It will be a nice summer cut.

Still in Iowa, getting ready to head home. Aren't they festive? :)

This is our new view of the fireworks display. Through the neighbors trees. We appreciated even this obstructed view from our driveway so the kids could be in bed.

Trip to Iowa

It's a tradition at Grandma Lois' house to be measured on the kitchen wall. This was Dru's first trip to Iowa so she had to be coaxed to stand against the wall. She finally stood still long enough for Grandma Lois to measure her. She is pointing to her mark between Hailey's from 1999 and Mariah's from 1994. Unfortunately Leo didn't get a turn, he must have been sleeping.

After visiting my great aunt Ruth, I took Dru and Leo to the best park I've ever seen. It is Stow Playground in Estherville, IA. Dru had a blast even though it was 90+ degrees and humid out. Leo wasn't enjoying himself as much, he dislikes being hot. In the top picture they both stopped to watch a motorcycle go by. We went to DQ right after this to try and cool off.
