House with a pool

When we moved back to Des M0ines after our trip, we were hoping to find a house with a pool. That didn’t work out. Now, with the prospect that pools won’t be open this summer, we decided to get a relatively cheap above ground pool to enjoy.

Accidentally using the pool cover as a ground tarp.
Initial setup
Partially filled, with some eager swimmers camped out to be the first ones in. That’s not true. Our kids just like camping out with the Reagens.
Filling the pool. We did not stand and watch for all 10 hours.

Clive Greenbelt Goats

The city of Clive has has goats that live near the trail and help eat the invasive species. We like to visit them. They have become the trail mascot and the city is now using them to help spread the healthy lifestyle.

Forest Life

One good thing about the quarantine is that the kids have had more time to play outside and with the Reagens. Lately they have been working on a forest hideout where they can hang-out.
