Download: Labor Day 2021

Our LDW was filled with lots of family time! We kicked things off with a trip to Iowa City to watch the Iowa Hawkeyes snag a W at Kinnick. We drove straight to the lake after and enjoyed some of our last boat rides of the season. Things finished on a high note by getting our tickets punched on a real steam engine. The boys had a blast and the adults needed a nap!

Fitzie is five

It’s hard to believe that my baby is already five. Time seems to be flying this year and I was definitely feeling it Fitzie’s entire birthday week. We packed in so much and I’m pretty sure he blew out candles every day. Love this little boy so much!
