Road Trip Part 1

Yesterday I got to go on a road trip with mom and dad. It was a lot of fun, and I had a great time riding in the car. Here are a couple pics of me checking out the scenery. (Please ignore the date, dad changed the battery and forgot to turn that feature off)


So, where are we headed?


The first place we stopped was Elk Horn Iowa. They have a really cool Danish Windmill there, that actually came from Denmark and was then re-assembled.

Mom took some pretty cool photos of the windmill. I'm also in there with dad.













Then, I got to check out all the cool smells around the place. I thought I smelled something interesting, so had to really check it out.




Hey, what's back here?




There it is!


Well, mom wasn't fast enough with the camera to photograph what it was, but I spotted Oswald!! And, I was going to chase him back to Kansas, but dad wouldn't let me. I wonder what he was doing way over in Iowa?

I thought I spotted him going into this Viking house, so I went in to check it out.



I didn't find Oswald, but I did find this dead animal skin. Mom hates this kind of stuff, but I thought it smelled pretty interesting.



Finally, I checked out the garden sitting area. I'm sure it was very pretty in the spring and summer, but since it's November, most of the flowers have stopped blooming.



After that, we continued our trip. But, you don't get to find out where we went next until tomorrow! But, here's a hint for you. The place we went (still in Iowa) not only had a book written about it, but also a movie!

Be sure to check back tomorrow for more fun pictures and also some VIDEO!!!

Wooo Summi!! I didn't realize you were sooo close! Next time we go, we will sure let you know. Because we ARE going back! You are a great guesser, but since you live there, that makes sense!!

The Human Assistant says you must mean either Children of the Corn or Field of Dreams because Invasion of Iowa, with William Shatner, wasn't a book.

But he hasn't seen any of the movies so he's not sure which.

woooos Hollybollybananaboo!

We wondered where wooo've been...no new blogs for a while. we like road trips too! Hu-mom says she's been thru Elk Horn on her way to Oregon, a long time before I was around! Cool windmill, but I think the viking house (& the animal skin) look more interesting. can't wait to see where else woo've been!

Wooos & a-roos.

M.P. says your Persons have a camera just like hers, with all the funny numbers on the bottom that never seem to be right. Crazy huh. A road trip! M.P. just decided that is what we need to do! Just her and me! (not Shelby yet cuz she is Un Pre Dictibble)

Was Samuel jealous you got to go and not him?

Hmmm... a book and a movie. Our Missouri grandpa was born in Iowa, but I don't think there was a book or a movie about it. I just don't know. Now I'm going to have to do some internet searching!!

Hi Hollybollybananaboo! Ooooh, I thought you were in Belgium, where my great-sisters were born at first! Iowa looks much more exotic than I ever thought!
Too bad you didn't get to meet up with Summi!!! That would have been really nice - and Davy TOTALLY understands your friendship, so there are no worries!
Oswald is THERE?!?!? You know, I haven't seen him in over a week, so I wondered where he'd gone! Wow, that bun sure gets around!
What a beautiful trip you went on. I can't wait to see more!
Love,
Amber
