A Summer Day Trip

This summer Trilby and I took her boys on a day trip to Des Moines. We started at the State Historical Museum.



They were impressed with the big cannon and the war artifacts.



Nate especially liked the buffalo and hoped Grandpa would shot one someday!


The boys being "goofy"!


Next stop......Iowa Hall of Pride.
Nate tried to b eat his mom in Let's Dance.


Payton really isn't quarterback material!



Cael makes his big play on the screen


And Nate was thrilled to drive the Jon Deere simulator.


Next stop....Bass Pro.
The boys try their hand at shooting.


Final stop.....Jethro's BBQ in Altoona for some scrumptious food.


And I think a good time was had by all! Next year we may add three more to our little outing as I think the next group will be old enough by then. Yippee!

We did have a lot of fun. We will have to get a bigger vehicle for next year!! Nate didn't beat me because his mom has moves!! :) And Payton has requested a trip to DM to Jethro's for his birthday!! It is nice to go to places that are basically right in our backyard.
