Memorial Weekend

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!It is a quiet day for us today. 
We have had a busy weekend starting Friday afternoon.  First Nancy arrived, then Dan and Bill soon followed, finishing their bike ride from Williamsburg.  They had a busy weekend with other biking friends at the first Annual Bike Festival in Jefferson on Saturday.   Now we have been on our own since noon yesterday.  Pop is gaining strength after being sick all week.  UTI's are no fun.

Honoring the Graduate

Hil graduated from University of Iowa Saturday morning.  Thefamily were there to cheer her on.  Dan and Nancy hosted a get together at their house in the afternoon.  Here Hil is opening a Wood duck plate.  (Wood ducks hold a special place in her heart!)

Wood ducks are special to David too.

Calvin keeps track of all activity. 
Jill and Sadie won't be far behind.  They are growing up fast. 

Joan and Michael enjoying their day too.

The boys were up too early!!!!  And the day was long from over.  We ate at Phat Daddy's in Marengo and then Pop and I headed west.  The remainder of the group went over to Koszta. 
Teresa had always talked about Rolle Bolle, from when she taught at Belle Plaine.  The place was still there and much the same.  This competitive group had a good time. (And they were told the teachers are still over a couple times per year.) (Thanks for the picture, Dan)

And not to forget Bentley.  No longer a puppy.

Breakfast with Marge

We met Marge, Linda and Paul for breakfast at the Uptown Cafe this morning.  Marge came to celebrate her 50th High School class reunion tonight.  Missed you, Ruth!
Calvin had two games in Ames today.  I got to the afternoon game.  Nice sunny day.  Not at all like the game two weeks ago.  They won one and lost one.
