My husband and I are driving to Iowa for a few days. We’re going to visit my in-laws and have a mini-family reunion. I say “mini” because my sister-in-law can’t make it.

We’ll be staying at my husband’s parents’ house. No bed-and-breakfast this time, but that’s okay. Besides, we couldn’t bring our dog, Rudy, to a B&B.

Although his hometown is tiny — well, not that tiny — population 5,000ish, I know we’ll have a quiet, relaxing time and so will Rudy!

  1. That sounds like a wonderful time. I hope you have fun. Where in Iowa are you going? I’m originally from Minneapolis, MN. I live in La Crosse, WI now and spent my summers in Iowa when I was a kid as my grandparents lived there. I’m a Midwest gal and was wondering if I would be familiar with where you were going. Just curious. Hugs, Sue

    1. We’re going to Manchester, in northeast Iowa, pretty close to Illinois, which is where we live. What part of Iowa did you spend summers in?

      1. Thanks for telling me Barb. I spent many summers and Holidays in Boone, Iowa. My grandfather was and is my most favorite person in the world. Boone is west half an hour (or so) west(ish) from Ames, Iowa ( I think). My younger brother also owns a wonderful little restaurant near Spirit Lake Iowa which is near Okoboji, Iowa. I hope you are having a wonderful time and you are feeling good today. Have a happy, healthy and fabulous weekend. Hugs, Sue

        1. According to my husband (he’s the one from Iowa), Okoboji is pretty far from Manchester but Boone is closer, near Des Moines. Thanks so much for sharing, and I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks so much, Beckie! But I’m going to pass. I’m thinking of making my blog a . . . what do you call it? Non-awards.
