We had a great week with our family. Ended up only having 4 come but we sure enjoyed them all! Got to see the Bridges of Madison County, Iowa and John Wayne Birth place in Winterset Iowa and also visited Garden Grove Iowa where their Pioneer relatives had passed through. They also made a one day trip to Hannibal, Missouri and then over to Springfield Illinois to see the Lincoln sites. They all went down to see a Royal's Ball game and we had plenty off time here at home. We got to go visit many of the Amish stores in my area and visit with some of my Amish Friends. They loved seeing all the millions of firefly's each night off our back deck and hearing all the frogs at night. They were amazed at all the deer and turkey and other wild life they saw here. My brother-in-law pulled out over 13 fish quickly from our lake and my girl's filleted them and we had a great fish fry dinner. It was crazy here all week and we loved every minute of it! Just got an e-mail that they are all home safe and sound. Sure miss them all already!
