THAT'S A WHOLE LOTTA CORN....

We have been traveling through America's heartland.....OHIO.....INDIANA......ILLINOIS.......and IOWA.

HERE'S

 
This could be a photo of any of these states! Never saw so much corn!!!
But wait....there's more...
 
 
 
 
 
America must be full of corn. Literally.
We did see other interesting, uplifting and edifying along the way.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Paul's boyhood home in Vandalia, Ohio
 
 
Picnic with family
 
 
more family fun
 
 
And more FAMILY! Hooray!!!
 
We had a great time in Dayton and made some very good memories. Thanks to all our Lafferty family we love you all.
We stopped for three days in Indianapolis area.
 
 
 
Stopped to see yet another covered bridge.
 
 
amazing!
 
We were number one on the list for this housing.....
Now, they are privately owned, still beautiful though. Fort Benjamin Harrison is no longer. We visited it as an Indiana state park. Very nice.
 
 
Next we headed west to Springfield, Illinois to rub shoulders with the Lincoln family!
YOU MUST VISIT THE LINCOLN MUSEUM....have seen none to compare. What a wonderful time we had. 5 Stars
 
 
Paul got to hob nob with generals McClellan (L) and Grant but they offered him no refreshment....
 
 
Another must see is the Lincoln tomb
 
 
stunning
 
 
 
 
 
"Now he belongs to the ages"
 
 
We are in Iowa. Amana colonies and German cooking....out of this world. Paul sure did enjoy his wurst!
 
Tally ho,
Cathy

  1. We loved Iowa....check out the Grotto. Sweet campground out back and the Ice Cream Capital in LeMars, city park there. The rollin hills there are wonderful. I'm only a few minutes from Springfield right now....just love the Lincoln sites! Hope you got a Cozy Dog!
