Illinois and Iowa

Last week we went to Illinois to visit Ben's family, and Iowa to visit my sister Heather. It's a good thing we are going back to Illinois next year because I didn't take enough pictures. I promise next time I will show you pictures of Ben's family!

Ben worked on building a swing set while we were in IL. This is what he looked like 80% of the time. Here he is the garage getting ready to drill some holes.

Here we are in Iowa. Uncle Ben is helping Luke with t-ball.

We went out to a pond near Heather's house. Look at this cute duck and little ducklings!

Proof that Ben actually IS a farm boy at heart.

Until next time!
