In the Camper – Sioux City, IA Part II

October 11th, 2019 by Aubri

Oct 4: During our camping trip in Sioux City we had some fun outings. One of the reasons we decided to get a camper wasn’t just to enjoy the outdoors together but also for the opportunity it provides for us to travel. Food and lodging for a family our size gets expensive. A camper helps us take care of both of those a bit easier.

Iowa has some great Nature Centers. We stopped by the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center a couple times while we were here.

In the Camper – Sioux City, IA Part I

October 11th, 2019 by Aubri

Oct. 3-6: We head North to a former stomping ground of ours, no not this campground but the city it’s nestled in, Sioux City IA. We spent 3 days at Stone State Park. When we lived 45 miles from here we used Sioux City for grocery shopping, hitting Target and Hobby Lobby, some doctors visits and the occasional date night. We had no idea back then there was an amazing and old campground here, that there were so many beautiful hills and so much to do for free for families in this city! We really just had no need for these things years ago but now with bigger kids and a camper it’s fun to go back for different reasons. While we were here we did a lot of sight seeing activities, we were real tourists!

I love that all my favorite church days are on the horizon, I love that the days will soon have a chill in the air, I love that the trees are about to do what they do. I put out the pumpkins my babies bring home to me and soak it all in. Let the Fall begin!

Oktoberfest

October 7th, 2019 by Aubri

Sept. 21: Backing up a bit. The babies ready for their folk dancing performance at the German Am. Society’s Oktoberfest. Esther is sick this year so I stay home with her. Phil takes all and apparently Martha goes out on the dance floor for the first time, not to dance very much but at least she gets out there! Of course I would miss that.
