The other part of our 10 day trip was spent at my mom and dad's in So. Sioux City, NE. We played at the park, visited with my Grandma Hattie, played games, visited with some of my aunts and uncles, watched fireworks, visited my Grandma and Grandpa Gill, and went to the zoo. Here are a couple more park pictures.

Part of our 10 vacation was spent in Rochester visiting my sister and her family. We went there so I could help her work on an album for Susi,their foreign exchange student(who leaves at the end of the month...we're gonna miss you, Susi). I was sick all day Friday(the day we had planned to scrap book with some other ladies) and was no help to Kristi at all. We did end up finishing the album during the week. Her kids were all very helpful, between play performances and play practice for another play which they always are...thank you thank you thank you!) with my kids. Here's just a few shots at a cool park we found.
Way back, at the end of May, we went to my brother's for a day visit. Randy helped cut down a tree in their backyard. Next thing you know everyone was building a teepee out of the branches and pine needles. It turned out really neat. The kids all had a blast playing in it. They even made themselves a mailbox and a sink(plumbing included).
