Box Of Eggs..

5star-banner  I love creative things. Who would have thought to put hundreds of different eggs into a box? Someone thinking outside the box, pun intended, that is for sure. I know this picture came from my trip to Des Moines Iowa but I can’t remember which museum it was in there.

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.

Des Moines Botanical Center – Des Moines, IA

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

Iowa Historical Museum – Des Moines, IA

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.

Capital Building – Des Moines, IA

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.

Living History Farms – Des Moines IA

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
