We visited the great state of Iowa for the 4th of July. It is always so wonderful to spend time with our family, meet new people, eat good food, and get plenty of hugs and kisses from darling kiddos. It was a quick trip, but well worth it. Zach was finally able to find time to read and relax, and I took naps and indulged with large quantities of unhealthy food. I always have and always will love staying at my grandma's house. It is a great place to be and relax, and right now, her garden looks absolutely beautiful. The dogs enjoyed their visit as well, even though the drive down was plagued by 6 vomiting spells (All courtesy of the dogs, not us, in case you were worried).
Driving through the cornfields and lovely rolling hills of the farmland landscape, we are always in awe of how long this area remains green. All in all it was everything we needed!
