Driving Through Iowa

Windmills in Iowa We were able to take just over  a week off for a mini vacation and family reunion in Colorado. We had a lot of fun!  We left after work on Friday night and drove until very late, so we could enjoy a slower pace on Saturday.

We did not stop much until we saw the wind turbines in Iowa.  Megan’s eyes got huge and she called them flowers.

While in Iowa we stopped at the “World’s Largest Truck stop”.  If it had been earlier, I would have taken a picture of all the trucks lined up.  It was a good touristy place to stop, but nothing special except for some really neat old trucks on display.

We visited a pony express cabin and reviewed some of the things we learned in history. The sod house museum nearby had just closed, so we unfortunately missed that.

The kids traveled very well. We enjoyed reading books and listening to stories on tape. The first full day flew by.Cows and Wind Turbins
