Slept in a little bit, especially by Iowa standards. After breakfast girls jumped on the mule, made some loops around town, and then headed to Kenny's farm. There they played with the cats and some of the other animals. We found out Kenny was injured and didn't see him the rest of the day. For lunch headed over to Herold's with Adolph & Miriam, and visited with the family. Girls re-enacted battleship game and posed with Bonnie. Then a Walmart stop, and off to Charles City to watch Kyle's baseball game (they won, with Kyle hitting the game winning double). We stopped at Big Ed's on the way home for dinner and impressively almost everyone ordered salads.
