Lucky for us, we only had 1 week back in PoG before we continued summer vacation and were on our way back to the states.  This trip was short but was chock full of food, family, and friends!

We started with my husband’s family reunion in Okaboji, Iowa.   We only got to spend 2 days in Okaboji this year but they were an AWESOME 2 days.  This reunion is the one time every year we get to spend with this part of the family so its a very special time.

After Okaboji we made our way down to Table Rock Lake to visit my husband’s Dad and Stepmom.  While Seth and his Dad worked on a few projects around the property I made up for the lack of shopping in PoG and hit up the outlet malls with Joyce.  It was a wonderful few days but passed by way too quickly.  We can’t wait until we get to head back to Table Rock!

We rounded out our midwest tour in my husband’s home-town, St. Louis.  We kicked it off with a trip to the Cardinal’s game and soaked in some more family time.  We got to share this special night with Seth’s mom, sister and her family… such a fun time!

The end of the week was spent celebrating the love and witnessing the vows between two of our favorite people, Brad and Kaitlin!  St. Louis is the city where Seth grew up, so anytime we are there we get to catch up with his friends from way back.  We had a blast reuniting, getting our drank on and dancing the night away.
