My Trip to Boston…

Had a great time in Boston last week! I had a really difficult time getting on the web with my iPad so I didn’t blog. I’d really like to go back, there is too much to see in just one trip. I went with my sister. She really did all of the work to set

Iowa Fields

As most people know the weather in Iowa changes constantly! This spring it’s been anywhere from 100˚ to having snow on the ground. That’s just been during the month of May!
