Iowa Adventures Last post

This is my last post to this Iowa Adventures Blog... I am sad and happy. Sad to be leaving friends, memories & a beautiful place , yet happy for new adventures with my family back to Texas with old & new friends and family.
I'm dreading the heat in Texas & know I'll miss the snow, but I'm ready for good Beef Brisket & Mexican food! 
So much to miss, yet so much to look forward too!
