Mini Iowa Vacation with the grandchildren

We couldn't fit a week away with the girls, so decided to take a few days and do some things here in Iowa. I asked Taylor, the oldest granddaughter, to help me choose. We went to Adventureland all day Thur. The waterpark area is huge. We spent about 1 1/2 hrs in the lazy river, which was full of people, but it is unlike any lazy river I've ever been to in that it's huge!!! Fri we went to Tanger outlet to shop, then to a Cubs game complete with a win (11-6) and fireworks. Their mom, Angela went shopping with us and then the whole family went to the ball game. The younger crew was more interested in playing in the water fountain than watching the game, but Taylor enjoyed watching. Dylan thought he was going to play ball, not watch someone else play. Today we might do a bit more shopping-tennis shoes for school- then off to America's Incredible Pizza. Little Dylan will spend the night tonight and tomorrow will be church with all the grandkids as usual. Grandpa and I will need a few days to recuperate. I took my camera last night and the battery was dead. Grandpa took his camera to Adventureland, so I will post some pics later.
