des moines. travels.

gone country.

July 3, 2013

for the past two days, [J] & I have been in my hometown. 10 of my family members [aunts, uncles, cousins] are here, from colorado & california. in anticipation for a huge family reunion this weekend.

we were so happy to spend some quality time with them.

dare I say our activities weren’t typical for us but extremely stereotypical for iowans.

my grandpa has a farm. that he does not live on. but rather, he works on classic cars [& tractors] there. the kids love going to run around [& drive the tractors]. so off we went ..

to play hide & seek in the corn fields. drive tractors. wander through the barns. and embrace our iowa stereotype.

guys can be so creative when they’re bored. with a baseball bat & a lot of athletic tape they made a gun look-a-like. it’s the only kind I’m willing to touch.

one of my cousin’s [from southern california] asked me if [J] & I live on a farm, surrounded by corn fields? 

these pictures only encourage the “every person in iowa lives on a farm” fib. but we don’t.

on the contrary, there are a lot of farms. I was just not raised anywhere near one. I get my sweet corn from the grocery storeor the farmer’s market. also according to my slightly irritated legs, I may be allergic to corn husks. and I’m petrified of insect close encounters, which there are many on a farm.

I’m a city gal, who can get down on a farm.

every once in awhile.

happy middle of the week wednesday.

[tomorrow’s a holiday: go find your red, white, & blue].

    I could never live on a farm due to my extreme fear of bugs and snakes, eeks! Dang city girls 🙂

      I’m with you – not a fan of insects, orrr snakes. ick! [especially ticks].

    I love these pictures! How cool that your grandfather owns a farm- sounds like a neat place to visit.
