We took our longest trip yet with all four kiddos over Memorial Day weekend. We headed to Spooner, Wisconsin for my cousin, Kasea's graduation. Every summer for the past, I don't know how many summers, Kase and McKenzie come to Iowa to stay with us for a week.

We had quite the Saturday night at the Bodammer's trying to keep up with Landon/Tristan and Blake/Bowen. The Bodie boys were born about 5 months before Blake and Bowen. We (Jill and I) thought it would be so adorable to get all four of the boys together in one picture. Yeah...
Here is attempt #1:
Then Blake and Bowen were watching and thought it was pretty funny too that their friend wouldn't sit still.
Jill tried her best, but we couldn't get Mr. Landon to sit still. So...
Here is attempt #2:
Landon has had enough...
And Tristan too...
And there sits Jill without either of her twins. :)
And then it was Bowen's turn to not sit still.
There he goes again. Clearly we should try to put them in the tub...
We had so much fun and can't wait to see our friends again, hopefully soon!

We decided to head to Northwest Iowa for Mother's Day weekend. Aaron took his last personal day and we picked-up Jenna from the Blank Park Zoo and made the long trek to Sioux City. I love seeing family, but man oh man do I hate the actual packing and traveling part.
Anyway, after a quick trip to Target we headed out to our friend Gabe's house. He (along with his wife, Jenny) live north of Sioux City on three acres of land. Gabe is like an annoying brother. A total smart ass, but when you haven't seen him for awhile you realize you kind of missed him. :) He took the kids for rides on his 4-wheeler. They loved it, especially Jenna!
In honor of Mother's Day...Aaron and his mama. :)
Sunday morning we headed to Cherokee to have lunch at my mom's. She put Bill in charge of the meal and it was delish. He made me an asparagus seafood bisque! Can you say yummy?!
The kids were excited to meet the three kittens my mom's cat just had a few months ago. Aren't they cute?
All of my baby dolls. I feel so lucky that I have been blessed with four great kids. I thank God everyday that he chose me to be their mom. They are each unique and special in their own way and that's why I love each of them. They keep me on my toes, but I wouldn't have it any other way. :)
