Part 2- Saturday the 5th

When we last left the Antisdels on their trip around the Midwest, they were ending a fabulous 4th of July at Lake Shawnee in Topeka, KS...

On Saturday mrning, we packed up and went back to our house, unloaded the camping gear and re-packed clothes for the rest of the weekend. Then it was back on the road heading to Iowa. We stopped for some lunch at delicious McDonald's and were happily chewing away when suddenly Makayla yelped in the back seat. Her front tooth had fallen out. In her hamburger. Ew. Thankfully the blood didn't scare her as she was more excited about "the loot" the Tooth Fairy would no doubt be bringing to her that evening. Before she had a chance to drop the tooth and lose it forever, I grabbed the camera and snapped a few pictures.

After the tooth excitement, we got back on the road and drove for 3 hours up to Creston, IA. Bill (Brad's Dad) was having a family reunion at his Dad's farm. The property was beautiful and full of history. I got a chance to meet several of Bill's relatives and siblings and we all enjoyed the fabulous weather. After chowing down on delicious home made ice cream and watching the kids fire up sparklers, we got back in the van and made the 1.5 hour trip back up to Ankeny, where we had dinner at Josh and Nicole's (my sister and brother-in-law's) new house. I didn't snap pictures while we were there unfortunately, but I did take some of baby Brei earlier in the day. Check 'em out before we cover Sunday...

Just chew on a hamburger to yank a tooth out!

Brei playing patty-cake...I think

Pulling on Grandma Jan's earring. So much fun!

All smiles!

I don't think we can afford to loose anymore teeth in our family! Aiden just lost his second this past weekend(in the hot tub at grandpa's, fare warning don't use the snorkel) Pretty soon it will be Tay and Brei with the loose teeth. Time goes by too quickly!
