Winnie & Papa C Visit Iowa

A few weeks ago, my parents visited from Texas!  They were the first family to come visit, and we had a great time showing them our house, neighborhood, and town.  We did lots of fun things, but we pretty much did all there is to do in the Quad Cities!  We joked that the first time anyone comes to visit, it is super fun, but any subsequent times will be a little on the boring side since we've already done all there is to do!  Midway through my parents' visit, my sister flew in from Virginia to surprise them.  She and I had been planning it for weeks, but mom & dad were REALLY surprised.  We had to tell a great number of elaborate lies to make it happen, but the surprise remained in tact, and it was pretty fun.  Come visit again soon, Winnie, Papa C, and Aunt Julia!  Warning: Picture Overload.

Thanks to my mom and sister for taking all of these fabulous pictures!  I didn't even get out my camera since they are such great photographers!  We had a blast... come visit again soon!

There's some serious preciousness going on in this post. I love all the family pics! And I think if you're not living in a corn field, then are you really living in Iowa? :P
