Corn….

Des Moines State Capital  Pic of Corn

Iowa is pretty much known as corn to many of us so I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised to see this very large picture of corn in the State House in Des Moines.  I am not making fun of Iowa as my home state of Indiana is known for much the same thing.  In fact Iowa is one of my favorite states and Mount Vernon Iowa is the most picturesque town I have ever visited.

A Box of Eggs…..

It is not everyday that you see such an assortment of eggs :)   I discovered this one at the Historical Center in Des Moines in 2010. Thought you might find it interesting.

This was part of the village at the Farms. The main attraction were three farms representing different eras of America’s past. It was a neat place to visit.

Ok the picture above is of a bicycle rack. No there are no bicycles in it that is the rack.  So in this case editing did not strecth the truth.  This is one of many unique bicycle racks found in downtown Des Moines Iowa.  We visited there in June of this year. It is a very interesting city and worth the four days we stayed there to tour.

The Des Moines Botanical Center is not one of the largest we have visited but it probably one of the best maintained (both inside and out). Date Visited June 2010

These pictures of the Iowa Historical Museum, that is in front of the Capital Building, were also taken during our June 2010 trip. Besides the Iowa political primaries section of the museum one of my favorite things was the skyscraper made from Leggo blocks that was in the lobby.
