MY SUMMER VACATION!





Yes here it is-on my Flickr site now-almost 9 pages of pics from my visit to my hometowns of Waverly and Dysart Iowa. I really enjoyed it-Kristin my daughter joined me and we laughed so much!-we did the requisite cemeteries visits and found super cool towns like Cedar Falls-and found Dysart to have become a destination for busses of quilters and sight seers! We stayed with my cousin Elaine and her lovely family, Sarah Marie and Tim in Minneapolis and then headed down to Dysart, and Waverly -we met up with my renter Lee, and met his family-Visited my land-picture above-go soybeans! ate at so many great places! Pork Chop dinner in the park after the parade anyone? The Fireworks were world class-really! Oh and met Robin,the owner of a super neato quilt shop in Dysart!!-named after her girls, Isabelle Originals and Ivy threads. We went to church on Sunday with my Aunt Lorraine and her girls came to town to visit- Connie, who brought her kids, Shelby and Nick and Arnola flew in from Chicago! The weather was mostly wonderful-and it was so good to go back and touch base with where I summered when I was young. Many pictures-a nostalgic look-I miss my grandparents and i so wish they were here so I could see slideshows and catch fireflies and eat homemade rhubarb pie.

Looks like a wonderful visit. My hubby is from S. Sioux City and we make the trip at least twice a year (8hour drive) Had a huge family reunion in Omaha and visited the wonderful Old Market there! I went to a small college in Iowa and loved it there
