She's here!

(Jan)This little bundle of joy is our new granddaughter Madeleine Marie. Our son and wife, Brent and Donna, welcomed her into the world last evening. Madeleine joins brothers and sisters, Stephen, Katherine, Michael, Anne and Elizabeth. We went to see her at the hospital today and everything is going fine for our new little miss and her mom. When the other kids got out of school, we went to their house to see them again. Tomorrow mom and baby come home and tomorrow night Grampa and I are in charge of dinner.
We made it back to Iowa last night an hour or so before Brent called with the good news so this morning we packed the few things we had taken out of the rig and headed over to Ames. We did stop to see my parents on the way and they are doing well. Tonight we are in beautiful Ledges State Park near Boone, Iowa N 41 59.820 W 093 52.446 - 1120 feet elevation. We walked the CG tonight, tomorrow morning we will hike some of the trails of the canyon
