FC: Jakes Iowa Vacation spent with The Bacons'

1: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” ~ Helen Keller | Samantha went to Florida with a friend and Jake wanted to come to Iowa so she stayed till he was done with school for the summer. Then Mendy, Jake & Samantha went to see The dolphin. along with some other activities before Mendy had to see them off for a few weeks. They had a good time with her. | At the airport

3: Before the kids came to Iowa Mendy spent some time with them. | Mendy, Samantha & Jake

4: They flew into Cedar Rapids and Alecia picked them up. While here Jake did alot of fishing and also went to a few of Jeremy's baseball games. It seems like we were always busy doing something. He also took one day and spent it with Katie while we were at work. Also Lonny took him trout fishing I think a couple of times. Lonny and Callie also took him to a big ball game some where and I think he had a good time. We watched fireworks in Dyersville and Ryan the Saturday before the 4th. Jake also liked driving the golf cart all over. I mean all over that cart made it through the junk yard and places I would have been scared to go with it. For fear I would have to push it back home. We also had a den of baby fox behind the house so he was constantly wanting to go target shooting with Curt. They did a little of that, but the fox were quicker than they were. By the time you were ready with the gun they were gone. Thats ok they had fun. Some days while we were at work Jake would go visit Joy and them up at the junk yard, that was a little bit of independence for him. Samantha, Amy & Jake also took a day and spent at the swimming pool. Where we camp during the summer @ Gearhart Mountain there is a pond that the kids all like to swim in. Jake wasn't so sure that he trusted it cause there might be gators in there. Hahaha. While camping at Bellevue, Bob & Theresa came up for the week and camped with us. One of the days at camp Bob & Theresa went to Galena. They have alot of little shops that people go there to see. Jake had some pictures with a bear there taken and picked up Mendy a little gift. | Galena, Illinois
