Special summer days in Des Moines.

The girls and I spent a few days in Des Moines before school starts soon! That's always a fun tradition. All of our summer activities are done by the end of July, so that's the perfect time to do some visits to friends and family. Kley had to stay home to work unfortunately, but we had a fun girls time.

We got to see my friend Lauren! We've been friends since 2nd grade. She has two kids (first grade girl and preschool boy). We went swimming together and it was nice to have a longer time to hang out and catch up. It was fun to watch Norah swim with Reese and Lucy and Ellory swim with Ray. They hadn't seen each other in awhile, but it's always so fun to watch kids pick right back up. 

Ice cream for snack poolside. Can summer get any better?

We went to Rose Farm one morning with Jorie and Murphy (my niece and nephew). It was our first time there; what a cute place! They were doing a back to school event with face painting, animals, and treats. It was fun!

Popsicles and the pretty flower garden.

We also went to Blank Park Zoo another morning and enjoyed seeing the animals, riding the train and the carousel.

Train ride together- fun to be with my mom, Rose, Jorie, and Murphy! Love cousin time!

Such cuties- I love this picture!

My lifelong friend Stephanie got to come for supper one night! So blessed by her friendship to me through all of our life seasons!

Jorie asked for a photo! :)
