Family Time in Iowa

My Grandpa saved a bunch of slides.  Look how handsome they are!

My dad when he graduated high school...he was SO little!

Sweet Grandpa.

Hannah has been doing genealogy work.  One of the lines goes clear back to Adam and Eve!  Grandpa was just baffled.  We are descendants of Kings of Prussia, England and all sorts of Europeans!

My dad's favorite cake!  German Chocolate!

It's always fun going to Iowa, it's amazing how different it is.  We have conversations about trains (grandpa loves trains, he even owned a shop).  We talk about trucking, big machinery and Harley Davidson.  Oh, and about corn and soy beans.  It's amazing how the midwest is so different from our dry desert.

This family is all about the rocking chairs.  In this room we have 4 rocking chairs alone. 


We were able to have a four generation picture!  

Even though we missed our mountains, Hannah pointed out that in the Midwest, there is SO much more sky.  It's so true.

I felt the need to take a picture of grandpa's oven and stove top.  It works like a charm and shines like it was new. 

Isn't he cute!?

We had lots of fun visiting the family.
