My dad and stepmom have been married for almost 25 years, yet this was the first time that I'd met most of her family. And what a great family she has! Such a fun, fun group of people.
I sure hope I don't have to wait another 25 years to see them again!
We ate one final meal in Ottumwa before heading back to Des Moines, at the iconic Canteen. Loose meat sandwiches at their best!
This place is so cute, and has such a strong history with the town and with Barb's family. It was the perfect way to wrap up our Iowa trip!
So while it was a sad occasion, I'm so glad that we were able to go and support my parents and meet Barb's family, and as an added bonus we even got to see Karl's family too!
