Corn, corn and more corn

Day 2 staying with our friends, Janet and Peter. Today was a shopping-free day. It was time to see some of the delights of Story County.
Setting off for our boat ride and a barbecue on the Great Creek.
Having a nice time sun bathing and soaking up the rays.
Happy family munching on yummy homemade guacamole and chips.
When we arrived back home, we experienced Smores for th first time.

The next day, we managed to squeeze in a little retail therapy before the IOWA State Fair.
Just getting started. Which stick shall I start with?

We had a close up look at some great animals.

Had to be done.
Then James and I were interviewed by Ed Wilson, chief meteorologist at It was exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. Ed and his camera man were really friendly.

It was a really great day and we have really enjoyed our time in Iowa.
