Well, there’s not much to report from today. We left Colorado early this morning and drove through Nebraska and on into Iowa and are spending the night in a little town outside of Des Moines. This was my view for most of the day:
Dave did most of the driving today but I took over for the the last 3 1/2 hours of the 10 hour drive. The weather was nice for most of the drive and we really enjoyed having a lot of time to talk and enjoy the scenery.
We are staying at this super cute hotel in Iowa that is themed like a lodge with “woodsy” decor. Here are a couple of pictures form the lobby:
It just feels so homey here and I love it! And, it is not expensive. I wish they had these hotels in more places where we travel. There is a pool area where the hot tub looks like it is in a rock, but I couldn’t get a picture of it without looking creepy since there were tons on people in the pool area. Maybe I’ll be able to snap a picture before we leave tomorrow.
Sorry today wasn’t more eventful. Tomorrow we plan to stop by the Herbert Hoover Presidential Museum and we will arrive at Dave’s grandparents’ house along with most of his extended family - that should certainly be an adventure!
