i'm back!

We really and truly had an amazing trip. There was a ton of driving, amazing food, and laughter constantly. All of the ingredients for a successful vacation. One of the most bizarre things I have ever seen was the hovering swarms of Mayflies! Alicia I thought about you a whole lot! They were huge and flew right into the windshield every time we drove down by the river. The picture above was pretty standard anywhere close to the water. I was totally floored! So big. And they swarm in thousands I tell you! Big black clouds you can see from a half mile away!

The Fourth was relaxing this year. We sat in our neighbor's driveway, lit some sparklers, and enjoyed a great evening! I love the pics below. The kids were moving so fast that they were just a blur of light!

Those may flies were the worst. But everything else in Dubuque was wonderful. Can't wait for our return trip.
