Iowa Pt. 1: The Farm

When my sister and I were young we played at my uncle’s farm in Iowa EVERY YEAR. One thing about the farm…everybody helps out including those who are 2.

Yummmmmmmmmm, fresh sweet corn. Well, it’s yum AFTER it is cooked.

The humidity was like a thousand %, but much fun was had by the cousins. Not really Gooner’s cousins, but my cousin’s kids. So whatever that makes them, to me it just means family.

Gooner was VERY excited about this ridiculous blue plastic fork. For the love… gross…get it out of your mouth! This was the best we could get with all the kids though…

She looks thrilled…right? I mean, all these kids were SO WILD! She did a lot of watching. It was good for her. She’s a good kid. I was proud.

Eating on this vacation was really hard for me. My lack of gall bladder, mixed with morning sickness, mixed with facing unhealthy andΒ fatty food caused this Mama a few days of miserableness. I only gained 3 ounces at my last appt. and that INCLUDES two weeks of vacation. I’m not complaining though, I’m just surprised.

  3. mmm… i love how everyone pitches in. we have that 1000% humidity here too. ugh.

    girl, you don’t need to be so concerned with your weight gain (to the ounce!). you are pregnant and better gain weight. with all that said, i know how hard it is to eat fatty stuff without a gall bladder. i hope you’re all back to normal!
