The best vacation was in the summer of 2008.
We went to Okoboji, Iowa.
It's a fairly large tourist spot in northern Iowa. As a kid, my parents and I went about every 2-3 years. We would occasionally go with the entire extended family.
Okoboji always feels like home to me. So many memories where ever I go.
In the summer of 2008, we went with the whole extended family - there was about fifteen of us all together. We cooked out together, swam, drank...just had a good time.
This is also that last vacation we would take as a family before my Grandpa and my Dad passed away.
I'm looking forward to being able to taking my kids again, to build their own memories.
