Family and Farmin'

We were back in Iowa again...this time with Dad's family. We had a weekend filled with fun on the farm (and tractors, of course), cousin time, two of uncle Jake's baseball games, great-grandpa Wayne's 80th birthday celebration in Templeton, Iowa, and we got to meet our one-week old new baby cousin, Olivia. Couldn't have been better.

Mason and his basketball. He's actually pretty good on the short hoop.
He's definitely more interested than Prior.

Alli, Ben, and Prior on the lawn tractor.

A picnic with our cousins, Alli, Kennedy, Miya, and Mason

Our new precious baby cousin, Olivia. Isn't she sweet? This picture was
taken before I had even gotten to hold her. I was secretly hoping the camera
noises would wake her up!

Cousins Miya and Kennedy supporting the Kuemper Knights. P&M cheered
"Jakey Number 4" at the game. I'm pretty sure he had the biggest fan section.

Prior and Great-Grandpa Wayne at his surprise birthday celebration.
Pretty special guy to have have 150+ people at his party.
Prior and Jake driving the tractor. Mason was scared to get in the tractor
yet we couldn't talk Prior out of it.

A quick hug for Miya and Mason.

Grandpa Denny and the boys.

Mom even let the boys have cake at Great-Grandpa's party. The sugar
helped offset the lack of energy from no naps!
It's soooo pretty on the farm this time of year.

Mason is a little cautious of the tractor - especially while it was started.
As you can see the boys' shorts are plenty big - they look like pants! Sometimes I
go a little overboard while making sure the clothes are big enough that we get
enough wear out of them.
