DH is from Iowa. Cedar Rapids to be exact. Did you know that there is more than corn in Iowa? There are Soybeans, too! More importantly, DH's Grandparents.
One of my favorite flowers is the Daisy. They were in abundance and in bloom during our visit.
This turtle shell has been a fixture on the shed since DH's childhood
This plow was used by DH's Grandmother's father when the property was a working farm. Now it sits treasured in a flowerbed.
The Nature Trail is within walking distance and they have a creek that runs along the back of the property.
DH's Grandfather still does all the landscaping and he does a great job.
Despite Cedar Rapids lack of a real entertainment district and nightlife (the Walmart is 24hours! and we did make a late night visit), we had a great time.
