My trip to Iowa

We made it home from a great trip to see family and friends. My babies are growing by leaps and bounds, and I enjoyed every minute of every day!

Duke had a good time too, he found out there were other people in the world and he grew like crazy. He even took a swim in my son's pool!

Our family got together quite a bit to PARTY!

We had a get together on Saturday evening after I arrived, then on Sunday afternoon we had a pool party at Rich & Stephs we had fun, lots of laughs and everyone got wet!

I was able to visit, relax, get updated, spend time with special friends. Mrs. Hamilton is one of my favorite people, and it was good to see her. I also got to spend time with my buddy Jodi Feller.
This turned out to be a very special visit as she was in a terrible motorycycle accident 2 days after this photo was shot and I traveled to Madison WI to visit her in the trama center. I am pleased to report she is on the road to recovery, however she had us scared. Get better my friend! We love you!

Here are more photos from Iowa!

This is my brother Bill in white and my son Rich in blue. My grandson Ian decided to crash the photo but didn't turn around in time.

Here is Lara with Anniken in the pool, cool shades little guy!

This was Saturday night at Beck and Brads......great to see everyone!

Everyone loves Duke!

I guess Duke is a pretty lucky little fellow!

Sarah just learned to ride her 2 wheeler!

We met up with my co-works from J H Revell Jewelers & Goldsmiths and had a little fun at
Texas Roadhouse. I even got a free tee-shirt! Wooohoo

I believe Beck and Brad were starting to show the wear from "mom" being
home too long.

All in all I had a great time, saw alot of my friends, got to shop a little at
TJ Maxx, and other places I love. Had lunch with Audry, saw our cruizin' buddies Rick and Sandy,saw Larry and Sherry out and about, got tons of kisses and hugs to last me a while, but it was good to get back to my Kentucky home where my honey was a waitin' and my little corner of the world was just as I left it. Beautiful!
