The past 2-1/2 days have been crazy since we arrived in Iowa – pretty much as soon as we hit my sister’s driveway Tuesday evening it’s been a constant flurry of activity.
Fun activities, of course – in between driving our husbands nuts with our constant banter as we play catch-up, we’ve enjoyed special events like a Shakespeare play at the University of Iowa, checking out the Amana Colonies (and enjoying excessive amounts of fudge) and fabulous cookouts on the grill in their relaxing back yard since the weather has been absolutely perfect.
Since I keep getting interrupted every 1.2358 seconds, I haven’t had a chance to get online let alone post or visit – but I figured I better throw something up so the dust won’t collect here too rapidly. I know I’ll already have enough dust to deal with when I get home and find out how many parties our cat Norman had while we were gone. I thought I’d share some more pictures from our second day of travel.

Either just before or just after we crossed the border of Iowa, there was a parking only rest area on both sides of the freeway, and we saw that three of the oversize load semis were sitting in the opposite side – so of course we had to stop and take pictures from the other side of the freeway:
With so much activity and so much fun, sleep has been a welcome reprieve – even for the Nagger:
Have a great weekend and a Happy and Safe 4th of July!
