Baughman's from Texas Visit

Some of our best friends from Texas visited us last week and we had a great time just hanging out and seeing all the NW Iowa had to offer....
Bedtimes were always an adventure. The first night we started out with Noah and Sylvia in the same room, with little expectations that it would actually work. Let's just say the rest of the week Noah had his room to himself.

We went to Orange City to visit David's parents, show them Northwestern College, Windmill Park, The Old Factory for Pour Over Coffee and of course ate at Pizza Ranch.  Oh and cooled off with ice cream and the sprinkler.
It is very hard for Rachel and I to find a picture of us together since one of us is usually behind a camera but we got one!
We visited Sgt. Floyd on the Missouri River in Sioux City.
"I'm King of the World"
In the middle of the week we invited all of our Iowa/College/OC friends to grill out at our house and meet the Baughman's.  Of course it rained all afternoon but we had a great time.  Number of adults: 17 children: 15 with 2 on the way!  Can you say full house, we are almost outnumbered.

We also went to my parents house for lunch, drove through Farragut, messed around on the farm.  All the kids rode the lawn mower with me, it was a pretty big hit.
And though not an awesome picture of myself plus, Noah and Sylvia are to their limits this is the only group picture we got the whole week.
We had a great time and are already thinking about a trip next year with some meeting up in between most likely!
