We went to Maquoketa Caves as a family. It was fun. I should have blogged about this MONTHS ago. But here it is. Great place to visit when you are in Iowa and it's FREE!

Family Pictures taken by Linda Lee


 The Sunday before Brenden left on his mission, my friend Linda Lee took some pictures of him.  Caleb and Megan were in town so she also took a few shots of the family.  The family shots were not a planned thing until about 2 hours before they happened, which is why outfits didn't match.  I'm just glad to have pictures of everyone!

Graduation and a party

Brenden right before he left to go graduate.

His entire class.  That's a ton of people.

I threw him a graduation party.  Here is a memory board of his life.  One picture I accidentally duplicated and I'm not sure how that happened since I had many people check the board over and over and over.  Can you spot my mistake?

Brenden's running awards, his picture from his Warrior Dash and another race we did as a family.


Most of our neighbors.  Well the neighbors we like anyway.  



My parents and my sister came from Ohio.  Too awesome!

My favorite family in the world.  The Dallons.  Their oldest daugher was at a birthday party so we missed her.

Jan with my nephew Ethan.

Another awesome family.  The Haacks.   Allison is Alyssa's piano teacher and a great friend of mine.

Mini trip with friends

Near the beginning of January I was invited to go with my friends to Marco Island, Florida.  My friend Kim is a pilot and because of that stays in Marriott hotels all the time and earns points towards free rooms.  She used her points for the Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club and Spa in Marco Island  so we all stayed for FREE!  This picture is us in the airport.
This is the first night on our way to dinner.  Gorgeous Sunset!

A picture from our balcony in the hotel.
An Octopus I found on the beach.  It was very much alive so I put it back in the ocean.  Super cool find.
Laying out on the beach!


Some of the things I found.


View from our room.
A cooler morning after a huge storm.  Tons of shells on the beach.


My favorite drink.  A Virgin Pina Colada mixed with a Strawberry Daiquiri.



I was thinking of registering for a marathon again.  when I got home I did just that.

A sweet looking bird.

Shells washing up on the beach.  There were literally thousands of them.  Super awesome.

Running on the beach.  My friends took this picture.  I'm running into the birds.

Another view of me running.    I went running on the beach every single day that we were there.  It was AWESOME

Beautiful
