After school let out in mid-June, Nyan and Daddy hopped aboard a plane bound for Tokyo.. then Chicago.. then finally (after some 28 hours) Iowa, where they spent two-plus weeks hanging out with Grandma, Grandpa, and the rest of the clan. Let’s see what they got up to!
One of Nyan’s favorite things to do in Iowa is visit Uncle Scoitt and Aunt Maggie. They have a big grassy yard for him to run around in… and best of all, Scott has a huge wood-working workshop!
So he spent a lot of time in there, building a nice little box.
We spent a lot of time with Great Grandma, including hanging out at her apartment…
Goofing around with her walker…
And feeding the fish in the pond outside her apartment:
Nyan also spent a lot of time down in the basement with Grandpa, working on the model train layout.
Nyan and Daddy drove over to Chicago for a couple days to visit Daddy’s friends. Nyan had a blast hanging out with other kids, the adults, and (especially) Pearl the dog — his first canine love!
