Big Adventure

My husband and I had our "Big Adventure" this past week.  We did a mini vacation of Iowa.  First on the list was to visit Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa.  So fun!  Love the gardens and loved the Lego sculptures.  I'll share just a few things:
Yarn Bombing at the Butterfly Wing
Since my knitting skills are very limited, I'm always impressed with how knitters can do this.

Lego Butterfly 37,481 Lego pieces
Next we visited my aunt who doesn't live far from there.  So much fun to listen to her stories of the old days.

Aunt Wanda and Me
We then headed over to Iowa City to visit my sister-in-law and brother-in-law.  Had a wonderful meal out, spent the night and  lots of visiting time.  Cedar Rapids here we come.  Spent a good part of an afternoon checking out all the Grant Wood art work at the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art.  Drove through Anamosa and Stone City.  Loved this building in Anamosa.

Dubuque and Decorah were next on the trip.  I won't bore you with the whole vacation, but we did end up overnight in Minneapolis to see the grandkids. (And their mom and dad.)  Very nice getaway, but nice to be home and in my own bed.  I guess I am old.  LOL
