Spent the weekend in Iowa, visiting friends and taking in the Iowa Corn Indy 250 with 20 Prospect Jr. I have to say, it was great to be out in the country for a few days. You just don’t get this in Fridley…
The kids were also happy to participate in their favorite rural pastime. Catching frogs.
We don’t get Bullfrogs where we live in Minnesota, so they thought it was pretty cool to see the size of those monsters. Even the tadpoles were as big as your thumb!
Of course, not all of the frogs are genetically engineered monsters.
The race was amazing. The best we’ve ever seen. I can’t recommend Iowa Speedway enough to folks that like to go to the races. Clean, family friendly, awesome sightlines, good amenities, and that sincere Iowa friendliness that makes it such a great state. I’ll post some pics of the race in an upcoming post. In the mean time, it’s back into the salt mines this week. It is planning season at work, and I’m in the midst of teaching my first class. It’s also our first week with the new pup, so life is a little crazy, and sleep has been hard to come by.
Tonight, 20 Prospect Jr. and his Cub teammates have what may be their last game of the season. Lose, and they are out of the playoffs. Win, and we will be back again on Friday. Am I a bad parent if I pull for the other team?
