Luke took a trip to New Zealand for John Deere this summer. Apparently he did spend some time working but I'm still not convinced ;-)

Maquoketa River Flood of 2010

Lots of rain and a washed out dam resulted in some pretty intense flooding around here. Luckily not too many houses with damage...mostly into fields...

That last one is a corn field by the way...

Part 4 (The End)

Yikes - I told we took a lot of pictures!!!! Like I said, we had a lot of time to relax and enjoy ourselves on this vacation. Here's a bunch of pictures from throughout the week. :-)
We found out on this trip that Michael is pretty much fearless. Not only did he love to play with the turtles in Nisswa, but he also loved touching and watching the many fish we caught!

And home we go....exhausted ;-)
