Nebraska - Part 1

We visited my grandma in Nebraska this last weekend.  I decided that the pool streak won't be broken if no one is home that day, but will if we are hope at any point.  I took the kids to school and we planned to pick them up and hit the road, so it was up to me to keep the streak alive.  I hopped in on my morning break about 9:45.  We had a pretty good drive down, just hitting a brief line of storms south of Jordan.
Meanwhile, my parents and brother's family had made it down earlier and were enjoying time with Grandma and Larry.
Grandma loves spoiling the grandkids and soaks up all the time she can with them.
We stopped for ice cream and cookie dessert in Sioux Falls on our way to the hotel in Yankton, SD.
We arrived in time to enjoy the pool before it closed.  It had a slide which the kids loved!
Saturday morning we were on the hunt for a plant for Grandma for her upcoming birthday.  We didn't find one in town, but leave it to Jimmy to spot a donut shop! A lovey sugar treat before our 2 hour drive to Grandma's house.
Esme drew a picture of her cat, Cutie, on the way. Grandma loved it and put it on the fridge to see every day.
We gathered at eh local American Legion since there was more space to eat and socialize.  Fried chicken, sides, and plenty of desserts.
Jaxxon and Jameson took a picture with one of the other twins in the family, great uncle Faron.
Parker had so much fun playing with Jaxxon's cars.
All the kids cooled down in the water table outside before starting a corn hole tournament.
Ramsey and Faron came from the losers bracket to knock out Angie and Sean for the win.
Lydia and I were LSquared.  We may have been eliminated, but two Ls make a W!
Esme played cards with Grandma and we all had fun catching up.
Photoshop gave us a pretty decent group picture.  Esme had the same face in all of them, haha!
