We’re on the road to Mount Pleasant, Iowa for a little lunch stop and stretch, providing the perfect opportunity for a little show and tell of our trip so far.
Although, yes, the roadside quaintness of our previous SB airport will be missed… The newly redesigned airport, I have to say, was quite gorgeous. Murals on the ceilings and tiled staircases led us into a couple of incredibly successful plane rides with the babe. Mason was a little flirt with the stewardesses and sought out smiles from the other passengers while he was awake, and napped for about an hour on both flights. Simpler than we could ever have hoped for!
We were greeted by Bob and Linda at the Des Moines airport and whisked off to bring a late lunch to with the Watson’s. We enjoyed visiting and Mason got to meet Jack and Jo for the first time.
We said our goodbyes and gave our hugs and got on the road to Pella, a small Dutch-style town (a little flashback to Solvang). A dinner in town and a little walk around was a nice, relaxing way to end the day
This morning, we were greeted by a happy, giggling, rambunctious kiddo.
And when our morning walk helped coax our happy baby into a quite tired baby, we hopped back into the car.
So on we go, driving some Iowan highways and gazing out over some wide open spaces. Enjoying our easy pace and excited to continue seeing family!
