A Box of Eggs…..

November 17, 2012

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 is one of my favorite barns. It is located in the Living History Museum outside of Des Moines Iowa. Yeah, that me going it.

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.

Here are some pictures from inside the Des Moines Capital building.  I particularly like the library with the spiral staircase.  As usual click on any photo below to see a larger image.

Let’s stay in Des Moines for a few more posts. Here are some pictures of the outside of the Capital building.  It is one of the most beautiful capitals we have visited in the U.S. But, we did get there at the peak flower time. Whenever we visit a State we always try to manage a visit to the Capital.

We visited here in June of this year.  They have, in addition to the town in the pictures, several different farms set representing different Iowa farming eras. as usual click on a thumb nail below to see a full size version
