Cedar Rapids has a special place in our hearts. It’s where our family was “born,” so to speak. It’s also the place were all of our babies, thus far, have been born.
It also happens to be where some of my family live. The kids love it when Uncle Tweedle comes over.
And of course, we had to see Grandma & Grandpa M.
Huh? Superman’s new talent is to climb on everything! So he’s also depeloped a couple of new bruises.
We also finally got E-Man his 5 year old gift. His very own helmet, that HE got to pick out.
We got to see Ms. A while were in town too! Ms. A and I went to high school together and hadn’t seen each other in a long time! It was fun to see her and her two adorable minions!
Finally, we went to the Art Museum to see some of Grant Wood’s art. We went to see his studio and couldn’t find it. So I settled on the museum. Grant Wood lived and worked in Cedar Rapids. I was surprised to learn that he lived with & painted pictures of his sister & mother.
It was a very fast trip as I had the 3 boys with me. (Princess & Handsome Hubby went to a wedding of someone that he knew better than I.)
They liked the wooden locks from Africa and the Roman busts. And because it was such a fast trip I didn’t get any pictures of it.
Mostly, I was too busy making sure they didn’t touch anything…
It’ll be a few years before we go back.
God bless your socks off!
