This October we visited Joe and Mal in Illinois.   And sweet and cute Elle too. They are happily adjusting to their new jobs and their new home in the beautiful country in the midwest.

Our trip today (still October) took us just east into the mountains over 4th of July pass into the most beautiful Fall colors.

 Elle with her grandpa in Iowa.

We spent some time with Joe and Mal at their home in Iowa City.  Joe has been attending the University of Iowa. He graduated from the Law School there on May 18, 2013. We are so proud of him and his accomplishments. Congratulations, Joe!

Two new teeth!  We are excited for Elle too!  She is a fun and happy baby.

The Turpin Family all together.  Little Mack is doing well and growing every day.  Thanks for all your faith and prayers in his behalf. They all truly all felt and much appreciated!

 Mack Bruce Turpin arrived by emergency C-Section at the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies in Orlando on November 9, 2012.  He weighed 2 lbs 7 oz

After some very scary days, both mom (Sarah) and baby are doing fine.

This is our precious little Grandson at 2 weeks.  Already back to his birth weight and gaining ground, slowly.

We have so much to be thankful for!  Welcome Little MACK!

Spent some time, finally! with Joe and Mal in Iowa City, Iowa.  It is really a beautiful town with the University of Iowa and the old village feel to the downtown area.  The ice cream was delicious (Whitey's). The weather was perfect (HOT and HUMID!) The company was the best (FAMILY!)  And also there is a bit of Church History there, as well. On a corner of the campus is a paved trail with markers that shows where the Mormon handcart  pioneer companies camped and then left for the west with their handcarts. We enjoyed every minute of our visit!  Thanks everyone!

Of course, of special interest in Iowa City is the newest
addition to the family: the new daughter of Joe and Mal.

Go Hawks!
Happy baby for her Mom!
Reading with Grandma?  Must be a really boring  story!

Happy for her Dad, too!
