Just in case anyone was curious, Iowa has excellent rest stops and places for your pet to run around. Favorite photos of the trip.
Amy spoiled us and took us to several museums, including the Mill Museum. Minneapolis used to be the biggest hub for flour milling in the world.
Her friends also spoiled us by cooking us a yummy meal. They know the way to the Fair's hearts-- free food. And they have the cutest daughter, Alex, that I got to take some pictures of.
