cat tails in Iowa
Oh, we stayed in the nicest hotel in Lincoln last night. Very soft beds and pillows and an amazing breakfast spread. The kids swam and we sat on the side watching and laughing at their antics as they tried to do multiple back somersaults in the water. Seriously, it was funny stuff.
We always love Iowa. It is green and loaded with gentle hills. If there is such thing as a welcoming state, it is Iowa. Nice people. Nice scenery. I snapped the top shot just over the border when we pulled over on a lonely off ramp to change drivers. These cat tails were waving in the wind and guiding us in.

A great dinner and visit with Erin (http://togetherforgood.wordpress.com) and her family. See yesterday's post for a link to her blog. I am posting from my iPad on the road, and coding for a link is not too easy here. They were smart and cute and almost exactly like I thought they would be. I am so thankful for blogging and the many friends I have made across the country. Really, it amazes me.
Tomorrow on to Chicago for three days with one of my dearest friends.
