To Nebraska or Bust...

Last Friday we left for Iowa and Nebraska to visit Mike's family. We flew out of Boston and arrived into Minneapolis and drove down to see Dan & Kim in Milford, Iowa. We spent a couple of days there then drove over to Nebraska to see Grandma & Grandpa. Was nice to see everyone again... time is always too short! Thanks for the chocolate cupcakes Grandma! :)

Kate seemed to warm up to Uncle Dan pretty easily...
Nicole, David & Bella slept in the tent (in the basement)... was pretty exciting!

the kids chased the cats all day long....
On Saturday night we started the 3 hour drive from Iowa to Norfolk, Nebraska... we saw lots of corn fields (up about 3-4" in some places), and lots of these...
and finally...
a long drive...
...for everyone!
