"Monkey Joe is Back!"

Parker is so sorry that he left you in Iowa over Labor Day Weekend.  Parker's Grandma Peggy sent him back to Kansas City.  Monkey Joe arrived on September 8th.  Thanks Grandma Bata!

August 2008       

August 31st - Bike Ride... Yeah                                                                 To see a slide show of these pictures go to Labor Day Weekend 2008



August 30th -  First full day  with the in-laws in Urbandale, Iowa.  Great Times!                                                            9:00 a.m.     I participated in Kara's Jazzercise Class                               It's not my favorite form of exercise, but I did enjoy Kara as an instructor.  I can't wait to see what  she is like in one year.

11:00 a.m.    Geisler Farm's Corn Maze        Slide show is below...

1:00 p.m.      Tastee's Tacos and Sloppy Joes


1:45 p.m.      Chick Flick time with Peggy, Kara, Kim, & Brenda

      We went to see... House Bunny

It probably won't win any awards, but we "highly" recommend this movie to those who love to laugh non-stop.  I'd put it on par with the Legally Blonde movies.

7:00 p.m.        A lovely steak and potato dinner

8:30 p.m.        Family Game Night - Sequence in Teams
