Goin' to Grandma's house!!

Last weekend Kate, Gabrielle and I went to Iowa to see some of my dad's family. We were able to spend 4 days with Grandma, Aunt Pam, Uncle Otto and my cousin Brenda. We also visited my brother and dad's graves, they are buried right next to each other in a Iowa. It's a long drive but oh so worth it!! Gabrielle and Grandma became great friends!! As soon as we walked into Grandma's house Gabrielle went right to her and crawled up on her lap... Grandma had the biggest smile!! It was so sweet!!
Here are the new BFF's!! Grandma loves dogs and has alot of little stuffed dogs and Gabrielle was in heaven!! We had to go buy her a little stuffed puppy so she would leave Grandma's alone.
Here's Gabrielle with her hostages, I mean Grandma's puppies.
This beauty is Grandma!! She's so fun and sweet and I wish we lived closer!! I sure do miss her!!
This is Aunt Pam and my cousin Brenda. Brenda lives a few hours away but came up for the weekend so we could see each other. I have lots of great memories of going to Aunt Pam and Uncle Otto's house when we were little and playing with all my cousins!! Brenda and I are close in age so she's extra special to me!!
Here's Aunt Pam, Brenda, Grandma and Gabrielle after dinner one night. Gabs decided it was a great time to stick out her tongue... kids!! :)
Here's Kate and Gabs on our way to Iowa in a cute little town we found in Nebraska. Sorry, we had to do it!! :) It was a good time in Iowa and Kate and I are already planning our trip there next summer with Laila!!
