Wow, what a weekend.
We celebrated Maisa’s 1st birthday on Saturday with a party at Sunset Park in Ankeny. Almost all of her aunts and uncles were able to attend.
Maisa received so many nice gifts. Everyone is so generous. Thank you!
Aunt Beth and cousin Zoe stayed at the house Saturday and Sunday nights, and Uncle Thomas stayed here Sunday night. We had a great time visiting with everyone.
Saturday was a heck of a fun day in the world of sports. The Dodgers had a come-from-behind victory and the Rockies lost, putting our magic number to win the NL West at one.
The Cyclones beat Army in Ames, and USC routed Washington State at the L.A. Coliseum.
But the biggest game of all was in State College, Pa., where unranked Iowa beat No. 5 Penn State 21-10. A terrific game by the Hawkeyes, who moved up to 13th in the AP poll.
Sunday was a bad day for the Dodgers. The pesky Pirates scored four runs in the bottom of the ninth to win 6-5. We’ll try to split the 4-game series today.
