Joe has been living in Des Moines for several years and we haven't gotten down to see him until now. It just has seemed easier for him to come to us since we have a couple kids to pack up and all the stuff that goes along with it. However, Joe has a couple new ladies in his life that we wanted to meet. So we packed up the minivan with some outdoor toys and some sleeping bags and we were off- with Ozzie.
We arrived Friday evening for dinner. We met Amy and her daughter, Ellie right away for pizza, dress up and a little soccer outside. Anna loved all her princess dresses. Saturday morning we went to breakfast with Joe. We met Amy and Ellie at the zoo. After lunch we went to a lake near downtown where the kids played in the sand and played at the park. We went to dinner at P.F. Chang's and then had dessert at The Cheesecake Factory. There was a little pond near the restaurant and the kids got to feed the ducks and play on the rocks.
We had a really fun time and really enjoyed meeting and spending time with Amy and Ellie. They were great. We are excited to see more of them at the lake!
