A Trip Back

Over Memorial Day weekend Dan wanted to go back to where he served his mission in Iowa.

We stayed in Clinton, Iowa, right next to the Mississippi.

Clinton is an interesting place, there are two factories there, a corn rendering plant and the Purina Dog Food factory, so, there were some interesting smells!

The kids just wanted to swim

One of the many old mansions.

Dan's old apartment

A lot of these midwest towns were settled by the Dutch so you'll see windmills. This one was across the Mississippi in Illinois.

On our way home we stopped by Le Claire, IA. at the Antique Archaeology store. This is the antique store featured on the show American Pickers, which Dan and Danielle love!

It's a little smaller than it looks on TV.
Most of the stuff wasn't for sale but Rayce found some tin action figures

Iowa is beautiful, and very green.
