The primary reason for going to Des Moines was family. Handsome Hubby grew up near Des Moines and all of his family still live there.
There aren’t a lot of pictures of family because we were too busy simply enjoying them.
At least, I was.
I simply just don’t think of pulling out my camera – even if it is on my phone – to take pictures.
I’m too busy talking, I guess…
And the kids love to spend time with their cousins!
I love Cat’s expression in this picture!
I have a similar one of Princess & Sky Fire when they were babies.
And don’t worry, I made sure everything was covered…
We stayed at Grandma’s house and had an Easter Egg hunt!
Who cares if it was a couple months late?!
It was fun!
We also went to the Science Museum.
This was Seth’s favorite room.
The kids also got to make stuff out of a block of wood.
They got to make paper rockets and fly them – Caleb’s went all the way across the room!
We also got to play with legos. They had it set up so that you could build cars to race.
(You may read: Seth thought the race track was a fun slide. I had to keep taking him off of it.)
There was also another room that the kids got to pretend to fish & farm & be a doctor. Sort of like a mini-children’s museum.
There were a lot of days that we just hung out and talked and played. It was wonderful for the kids and nice for me.
I regret to say though, that poor Handsome Hubby didn’t get to enjoy his family as much as I did. Poor guy had to work all week. At least he had the weekend.
Thank you, Lord, for understanding family and that he has a job that can allow us to go on this wild, crazy adventure!
May God bless your socks off, as He has mine!
