Visitors from Omaha

We played host to my sister, brother-in-law and their two sons, Adam and Eric, this weekend. The made the drive from Omaha. A grand time was had by all.

We made the last half-hour of the operation day at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium.

Does spelling count?

The afternoon concluded with a brief tour of the Telegraph Herald. Looking into the sun is no bargain for the boys.

Adam is making his First Communion in a few weeks. As part of the celebration, he and his classmates are making their own personalized quilts.

Part of the reason for the visit to Dubuque was to call on the expertise of Madame X (also known Aunt X). In the video, 6-year-old Eric assists where he can.

By the end of the evening, Maddie had warmed up to the idea of some Lap Time.
