Iowa Day 3

On our last day we made all the same rounds to say good bye with an additional stop at Mark's Great-Aunt's house so the boys (Great Great Aunt) which was probably the funniest thing I've experienced in awhile lol--she has some sort of memory issue, but was the sweetest lady:) She introduced herself to me 3 times in 15 minutes and thought I was my father in laws wife--not sure how that works when she knew (my Mark) was his son lol, but we played along because there was sense making her more confused lol. She even proceeded to ask (my Mark) if he had a girlfriend lol I was dying because I wanted to be like "yes I am right here" but Mark just said that he did:)
Another funny thing that made me laugh was Mark's Grandma was obsessed with my Pony Tail--everyone knows I like bigger hair well she LOVED "my bump" in the front and asked if I would show her her how to do it to her hair:) *That story was for my friends that always ask how I get "my bump" lol
We were sent off with yet another HUGE meal from Mark's Grandma (when I say huge I mean like she put 4 dinner rolls just on my plate alone lol)& the boys played outside to wear off some energy before we had to fly... The weather was so nice--the high today was 51!!!!
So sweatshirts and Starbucks were a must:) I have to say that the good byes with Mark's Grandpa were the hardest to watch since his Grandpa was so emotional--I think h liked the chaos they brought to his room:) We already went and printed the 4 Generation picture and put it on his bed stand so at least he has that to look at too!
