(Jan) We headed for Saylorville Reservoir Wednesday 5/14 to spend a long week-end at the Corp of Engineer’s park there. Our camping spot was just below the dam and we made lots of trips down to the discharge area and to watch the turbulent river water rush out of the 22 foot tube. Awesome! We stopped at the Visitor’s Center and the Butterfly Garden as well as doing the Geology Hike. On Friday we enjoyed a visit to the State Historical Museum in Des Moines. On Saturday morning Eric, Cheri, Ryan and Jessica stopped by to visit; they were in Ankeny for Cheri’s niece’s graduation. Also, on Saturday, Brent, Stephen, Katie and Michael came down in the evening and Sunday we drove up to Ames to have dinner and celebrate Brent and Donna’s 13th Anniversary. It’s been great being with the kids and grandkids again.
