I'm a day late because last night was too much fun to do work. We had a looooong travel day yesterday, which was made longer because of the grueling Nebraska scenery. We were happy to arrive at my friend Heather's house in the afternoon. Her house is in rural Iowa, which is home to me. We have felt more at home here than anywhere yet. Heather fed us, let us catch up on laundry, let the boys explore her land and this morning they are falling in love with her cat and chickens.

Iowa sunsets are so beautiful!

Willow is the boys' favorite of Heather's animals. Sammy keeps asking me if he can live here forever or at least bring Willow home with us. :)

We will be heading out in a bit and our next stop is CLOSE and we cannot wait to spend time with tons of family!
