A busy weekend

Grandma & Grandpa Engle came to visit this weekend! They travelled from Gardnerville, NV to see Malaina in her dance recital, and to meet Justin for the first time. We went to the Farmer's Market on Saturday, and had a great time seeing all the beautiful produce, sampling Kettle Korn, and Dad even chatted with a few other Aussie Shepherd owners. Malaina got to ride the train, and could have done that all day. Justin was sacked out in the Bob the whole time, but I think he enjoyed himself, too. Later that day we put Justin in his Jump Up (see video below), and I guess he was so worn out that he fell asleep! After dinner we went to Snookies for a little ice cream and Iowa atmosphere. Sunday was a quiet day, and we had to abandon going to Pella in favor of staying dry and off the flooded roads. Grandma and Grandpa got some one-on-one time with the kids while Matt and I snuck away to a movie. What a great weekend! We should be off to Winterset today to see the covered bridges.

Justin in his Jump Up! He seems to enjoy it, and it always cracks me up when he gets some momentum. (Ignore the conversation in the background)
