Trip to Iowa

The kids and I headed to Cedar Rapids last Sunday (4th) and stayed up there until Tuesday. Then on Tuesday we headed down to Burlington and stayed until Thursday. Colin and Taylor got to open Xmas gifts from Gavin and Jayden. Colin received a Tonka race car racetrack and Taylor got a Belle Princess Barbie doll and a play pizza set. It was a nice visit. Taylor and Jayden had so much fun playing! Which they normally do, but sometimes they both have their spats, but the 2 days they saw each other, they played and played, climbed up on the couch's and slid down them, it was fun to watch them getting along together. It was a nice visit with the Cernin's and the Stevens' family!

Havin' some pizza! Yummy

Ooo, Taylor, that pizza sure looks yummy! Glad to hear you and Jayden were able to play together (and so well!). I know he was asking about you when I was home. He misses you. I like your racetrack, Colin. That looks like a lot of fun! Bec, I like the pics on the side of the post. That's really neat. The one of you and Tim is really nice (you two clean up well *grin*).
