After a wonderful week in Minneapolis, we headed three hours south to my sister's house in Iowa Falls. If this road trip rings a bell, we did the same route back in March. We're trying to take advantage of living close (5 hours is close in the Midwest) to family, especially since Aaron and Tandy will finish school next May.
Laura lives in a wonderfully small town, with not very much to do. But they are great at always looking for fun activities for us. We went out to a lake near their house, had a picnic, only to discover that the lake had had a 'fish kill' - when pesticides from the local farms kill a lot of fish in the nearby lakes and rivers. So, due to the terrible smell, and the rotting fish in the lake, we changed plans and went to the city pool instead.
