Girls Weekend Day Four

On our last day in Iowa and before we made the four hour drive back to Chicago's  O'Hare airport and onto the flight back home, we took a tour of the farm and said our "goodbyes to family". Below, is the original family home of my Aunt Catherine and Uncle Bob in which both have passed away. It then belonged to my cousin Carol and her husband  who passed it to their son Derrick and his wife Lorie who are currently renovating the house for their own family. Carol and her Husband currently live in another house on the property as well as my cousins Jim and his family and Kevin and his wife. It is my understanding that out of the four children of Aunt Catherine and Uncle Bob, three live on 265 acres of the farm. The fourth cousin, Michael and his wife reside in town.
