My nephew and niece from FLA came to spend a few days with us.

On a perfect Sunday evening, we went to the IA City River and then walked downtown.

Nic and Mitchell were in great demand for their rides.

On Monday morning we picked 102 lbs. of blueberries.  


When we got back from our expedition, we found Hudson, (who had stayed with Marlin and Mitchell in the barn), with a bad gash in his forehead.  He ended up with 9 stitches!!

We ended that eventful day with a cookout in our woods-grilled pork burgers, tomato/cucumber salad, pasta salad, fresh veggies, watermelon, and banana tin foils.

These “classy” jackets were mosquito protection!!
Laura and Nic, thanks for coming to see us.  We love you!
