I went to Iowa this weekend, my first trip to the state of corn and Shawn Johnson. Chris grew up in Adair, the home of the first western train robbery and a seriously awesome smiley faced water tower. We visited and I was given the full tour. I think we saw maybe 5 people total on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
There were also lots of windmills, which fascinated me! I've seen them before, but they are just so cool. We thought we heard a train at one point but it turned out to be a windmill kicking it into high gear with the strong wind we had.
The reason we went to Iowa was to visit some of Chris's college buddies. That was a tad overwhelming, but really fun and enjoyable. It was neat to see Chris with his peeps. I learned a new drinking game, ate walking tacos and generally had a good old time. Now I'm going to be catching up on sleep for a good week, but it was so worth it. :)
