Wednesday Weekly Review - I-O-W-A!!!

This past weekend, I headed to Iowa City for our annual football game.  We had beautiful weather and a ton of fun!  My family didn't make the trip this year, so I dropped Dylan off in Des Moines for some fun with Namma.  

We also had a ton of fun playing with our Iowa friends!  On Friday, we stopped at the Winter house and had a blast playing with Karson, Aubrey and Libby.  Amy and Kelly certainly make some cute kiddos!  On Sunday, my mom and Dylan met me at the Turner house to see JoAnne, Jeremy, Quentin and, of course, Baby Cameron who is getting SO big!  I have a few pics on my real camera so will post those later!!!  For now, here is what we managed to capture on various cell phones :)

We wear pink for Kristen!


This seemed like a good idea at the time :)

This definitely was a great idea!!  Lars if very talented!

Meanwhile, back in Des Moines...

Papa took D to the mall to play on the playground and to find slippers.  And of course, what trip would be complete without a cinnamon roll??!!??

Namma took Dylan to the par 3 golf course!!  He played about 4 holes and then hit it into the sand trap.  Namma said he did a great job hitting out of the sand, but then while he was climbing out he fell into a weed that was covered in thistles (or pricklies as D calls them)...He was actually covered in them and they left stuck him through his pants and all over his hands!  Namma said it was pretty tough, but Dylan eventually recovered...the picture above was the one I got in Iowa City:  D with no pants on a golf course.  Needless to say my mind went all sorts of places with that one!  Dylan will now tell you that he "never ever ever wants to go back to that sand trap again!"  It's pretty cute :)  His love for golf, however, does not appear to be diminished!

Park fun!

Pool balls!! 


Getting his culture for the day :)

On Monday, I picked D up early and we headed to Deanna Rose.  It's only open for a few more days and I figured we needed to take advantage of the beautiful weather!  D had a great time mining and we rode the pony twice!!  We will definitely be in withdrawal once it closes!

Papa showing Dylan how he hits golf balls in the garage...I told Papa that when D throws a club through his car window, he had nobody to blame but himself...

We decided to hit up the park this D is doing a great job climbing the rocks to go see the dragon statue!  He insisted on doing it by himself and did a great job on the way there and back...then he got overly confident and the next trip out there we ended up with one foot in the lake.  Luckily, he caught himself, so the damage was just one wet shoe and sock :)  


  1. I think Dylan is ready for the OP par three course. We will just have to watch out for pricklies.

  2. Looks like lots of fun for Mom and Dylan!

    Love you guys!


  3. Glad you are enjoying the last of the nice weather and your time off, such fun! :)
