Linda's Birthday

June 29th was Linda's 66th birthday. Coincidentally it was also my great niece's, Naddie's, 2nd birthday. What a special day it was.

Here we are celebrating Linda's birthday.

And if we had been close enough, we would have liked to have celebrated Naddie's birthday as well. Isn't she a sweetie? Thank you to Heather for providing this cute picture from her blog.

Convertible Ride and Sioux City Municipal Band Concert

Sunday we took another trip in the convertible to see the Loess Hills. I didn 't really get any pictures of the hills, but we stopped at the Lewis and Clark Park just out of Onawa, IA where they have a replica of the keel boat that Lewis and Clark used on their journey up the Missouri River. We enjoyed the fresh air ride, but didn't do a lot of exploring that day.

We ended up in Sioux City where we attended the Sioux City Municipal Band Concert. WE did this last week too. We know the host, Dave Madsen, who is president of the local magic club, and he just changed jobs as the manager of a local TV station to be the dept. chair of mass communications at Morningside College in Sioux City. (Trivia we're sharing for no particular reason.)
