Happy Anniversary Kate & Steve


We headed out to Iowa this weekend to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of MizBubs' sister Kate, and her husband Steve. Steve's family owns a farm and we make it out there a couple times a year to camp and visit.

This weekend was wonderful. While there was no Sunday Afternoon Cocktail, there was a keg of Pabst Blue Ribbon, multiple bottles of bourbon and at one point Saturday afternoon a delicious Bloody Mary appeared, made by some guy named Andy we'd just met for the first time, chock full of horseradish and minced garlic. Whew. I'll have to get that recipe.

There was singing, party games, adventures with chainsaws, and fishing, and a ratio of one dog per every 2 people. It rained a little, but it didn't seem to bother anyone. There is no better feeling than being in a warm dry tent at night and listening to the rain falling.

Here are some pics from the weekend. Hope y'all had a good one. Now it's back to work.

Maybe not ramshackle, but that looks like a sprawling compound of its own.

And one with equal amounts of great good fun. You all sure do know how to live.

I love that about you.

Did you say "hey" to Iowa for me? If I remember correctly you have inlaws in the CR area? We Iowans are great at campfires.

Glad to hear their names aren't Kate & Jon!

You're like me - I take way more pictures of food and alcohol (with some landscape tossed in) then I do of people.
