Mini Road Trip

We recently took a little trip from our home in northern Missouri to St Stephen, Minnesota to pick up my father-in-law, who was visiting from Seattle. On the way home, we paid a visit to some relatives in Iowa. While traveling across northern Iowa, I was amazed at the number of wind farms that have sprung up and now blanket the landscape! I know these have been in California for years, but to see them by the hundreds in the middle of the beautiful corn fields was a little disheartening. You might even say ugly!! I wonder if the farmers will regret allowing these on their land??

We ended our little trip in Columbia, Missouri where we met up with my son, Jacob and his friend, Rachel. (I think I caught Jacob with a very wide-eyed look!! Was it too much coffee??!!! LOL!!! Sorry, son!!)

No, I was being silly. It was Ally's fault. She has that affect on Uncle Jacob.
