Last week, we went to a family reunion in Okoboji, IA. The main purpose of the trip was to reunite my Grandma (who passed away in November) with my Grandpa (who passed away when I was a freshman in college). Family from all over the midwest would be attending the ceremony, so the family made a week of it. In addition to attending the service, we:
Caught our First Fish
We spent about an hour fishing "3-year-old-style." Dropping a line off the dock and watching the fish swarm around the worm. Both kids caught several of these tiny fish; sometimes they didn't even need the bait! It was great fun to see the kids so excited about catching these tiny fish. Needless to say, we threw them all back.
Hung out with cousins, new and oldMegan and Liam had a great time hanging out with their cousins, Jared, Holden, Jacob, and Lucy.
Exercised and took a few napsWhile I didn't watch what I ate (AT ALL) I did manage to get in two medium length runs and do P90X twice also.
Spent some quality time with the familyEven though there were a lot of people to visit with and catch up with, we did manage to eek out a few moments for just the four of us. Treasure Village was a great place to take the kids to see a short musical version of Cinderella and a backdrop of corn is actually a really good place for a family photo.
I love these pictures of the two older cousins on the trampoline at Arnold's Park on the lake in Okoboji, IA. They really do capture the essence of what being a kid is all about. I had a great time in Iowa. Who would have thought that we'd spend a week there for two consecutive summers.
Oh yeah, and I remembered a few things about fitness and vacations too!
