July 20-27 Bob's Birthday Trip

We headed to Ana's on the 20th. Diane stayed, and Bob went to Jimmy's in Wisconsin on the 22nd to help him get his tractor started. We all met in Iowa at Tom and Trina's on Friday and celebrated Bob's 70th birthday and Grace's 4th birthday over the weekend.  

At Ana's the girls had swimming lessons, Claire went to gymnastics, watered flowers, painted boards, rode bike, and we all "picked rock," and wore gramma out!

Who needs a pool when we have a sprinkler!

The kids played ball, had a race, threw water balloons, and had fun together

All grampa wanted for his birthday is to make footprint pavers of all the kids at the party

Jett carves his name on his block

Lydia is on the spot
