Trip to Iowa

The Friday before Memorial Day, we headed to Iowa. We left Friday evening and drove a few hours to a hotel. We got up the next morning and drove the rest of the way. We drove home the following Saturday.

Highlights of the trip include a cookout with the extended Longenecker family, a Memorial Day service at the Walcott Cemetery (where John’s Grandpa’s name was read), eating delicious Whitey’s ice cream, attending the Nauvoo Temple, and simply enjoying time together as a family.

Our trip also included the funeral of a family friend of the Longeneckers. The passing of this friend was unexpected. It was a tender time. I wrote about my experience attending the funeral in my last blog post.
