A Bit of This and That

It's a bit about the Grans and my recent trip to Iowa..........
This little guy has become quite the MESS!  He loves to climb and the other day his Momma found him in the middle of the dining table.  He sure looks mighty proud of himself doesn't he?
And, we'll be celebrating this little red head's 2nd birthday on Sunday afternoon.  Her shirt says, "I'm Two dles!  Now, if you don't watch the Mickey Mouse show then you have no clue what this means.  But, if you do, then you know how stinkin' cute this is!
Clancy has become quite the Oklahoma State fan!  He has recently attended some basketball games and he loves cheering the Pokes on to victory. 
Hanna Beth had to do a 100 days of school project last week and made this Dum-Dum bouquet with 100 Dum-Dums.  What a cute idea and I don't know for sure, but I'm thinking it may have well been another Pinterest idea.
I took a very fast trip to DesMoines a week ago today.  My youngest brother and his wife live there.
Tater, their Goldendoodle was so glad to see me.  I'm not  much of a dog person but Tater won my heart the first time I ever met him.  He is so precious and so close to being a human it isn't even funny.  He minds his own business and is just a joy to be around.
On Saturday, my brother, SIL and I drove up to Orange City, Iowa, home of Northwestern College.  Their son and his girlfriend were staring in the two person play, Last Train to Nibroc.  We enjoyed a nice dinner before they had to go and get ready.
 You may be like me and never have heard of the play.  But, folks, let me tell you, if you ever get the chance to see it, DO.NOT.MISS.IT!!!
It is about a rather fiesty Southern couple that meet on a train ride to their home town.  It will have you rolling in the aisle and might I add, these two are "natural born performers."  They both have a desire to pursue acting in some fashion and I can hardly wait to see what doors open for them. 
It was a very quick trip for me but I wouldn't trade being there for anything!  It was such fun!

NOTE:  I played around with some of the new "artsy" editing tools in BeFunky on some of these pictures. ~in case you were wondering~ Between BeFunky and PicMonkey, there's not much you can't do when editing pics.
