Summer Trip

We just got back from a week-long trip to visit family and friends.  Des Moines to stay with my sister for a night, then on to Chicago where both sets of Grandparents and some of our college friends live.  On the way home, we stopped for a few hours in Iowa City (our college town and where Steve and I met), back to Des Moines for the night, and finally home to KC.  We have not lived within driving distance of our families in over 10 years, so being able to take a little road trip was certainly fun for us, despite the sweltering, record breaking temps!
There is something so fun about getting away, and for me, something so great about getting back home and getting back in the routine!  Here is a little bit of our trip…
Drew & Kate went to the Arlington Race Track with Gma and Gpa Larson…

 Mommy and Daddy went out in the city with friends…oh, to feel young again!
We visited a college friend who just had a baby.  Getting a baby fix was super fun for both me and Kate!
   Band concert at The Glen with Gma and Gpa Haskins…

Pizza and balloons with the cousins.  I often get asked if my kids are twins, and people often think Drew and Mia (middle) are twins, but this particular night we got asked if they were triplets! 
We had to make a pit stop in Iowa City…this place holds a lot of great memories for me and Steve.  We ate lunch, walked around the ped mall, showed the kids our old stomping grounds, went to my sorority and Steve’s fraternity house, ate Whitey’s ice cream, drove past the stadium, and bought some Iowa gear.  Go Hawkeyes!
Hope you all had a wonderful week!
