A Busy Weekend in Cedar Falls

Last weekend was a big weekend in Cedar Falls. Not only was it the Sturgis Falls celebration, it was also Mom & Dad's 40th Anniversary.

My favorite part of Sturgis Falls was the parade. As you can tell, most people were excited for the parade.

Unlike the rest of us, Rowan didn't seem too excited. Perhaps he didn't know what was coming.
I don't think he knew that Dad, Bailey, Ellie, and Jaden were about to ride past in a convertible. They were all excellent wavers!
Not too long after Dad & the girls it was Kathleen's turn. She was on her reunion float. She really had mastered the wave. Not everyone can pull off the two handed wave, but she did it with ease!

On Saturday we went to the Elk's Club to celebrate Mom & Dad's anniversary. It was nice to have everyone home to celebrate. I am so lucky to have parents who have taught me so much. It was hard being a teenager when they were always right, and it's hard being in my 30s and knowing that they are still much cooler than me.

While at dinner we found another way that Bailey takes after me: she's really good at hanging spoons on her face.

It's always fun when my two favorite guys get together.
We had to leave right after dinner to get back to Des Moines. I wish I could have stayed longer. I am so thankful to have such a great family.
