Trip to Iowa

We took the boys out to Iowa for Thanksgiving this year to visit family. Neil's Aunt Carol and Uncle Jim were nice enough to let us stay at the farm as well as Grandma and Grandpa. We had a good time and Jack got to do all sorts of his favorite things!

Better watch out for the animal cruelty people with jack and kittens. I have a feeling Thanksgiving could be Owens favorite holiday... he is a little piggy himself! Also looks like those cute boys have quite a bit of competition from the other family cuties.
