UP family day in Boone (Iowa)!

John's cousin is fascinated by trains, so we invited him to go with us on the train ride across the High bridge between Boone and Ogden (Iowa).
 This is the 'small' passenger train that was giving rides during Family Day!
Then we were loaded on the passenger cars (there were bunches of train rides to accommodate all the requests to ride over the high bridge!) and started on our journey. 
The drought is evident in the Des Moines River view from the High Bridge! 
We met a coal train on the main line.
(I've been having a little trouble with the new computer and photo editing software, so my blogging has been frustrating lately.  Hopefully I've found the program that communicates better with me and the computer!)

Inside the new house....in Beaver Dam, WI.

This is what it looked like before we started moving furniture and boxes into the house. 
I'm quite jealous of this beautiful (spacious) kitchen (including the appliances!)... 
The family room/great room area next to the kitchen is starting to take shape (not the finished view, since the tv will eventually be hanging above the fireplace), and of course, there was a Star Wars marathon on one of the channels this weekend. 
The view of the lake from the back yard (we were sitting while supper was grilling). 
The dining area looking very inviting! 
Oliver LOVING his new yard and house (and checked out ALL the rooms as soon as he arrived)!

Alex and Allison MOVE into a house!!

Limestone and cows in the viewfinder so we must be on the way to Beaver Dam (Wisconsin)! 

The first load for the big red truck was a couch from Allison's folks we picked up on our way over. 
A nice view of the pool and the back of the new house with the four-seasons room.
(More tomorrow...)
