I love heading home to Iowa. The drive - while not that exciting is always pretty. Plus - on the other side - I have great friends to spend time with.
Commemorative Air Force AirPower History Tour. We were about to see some crazy old planes - but first - got to see the Back to the Future car. I'm not even sure Tanner knows what Back to the Future is - but he was interested nonetheless.
It was pretty neat - a little slow - but if you're a historic plane buff - you'd love it. They were in Cincinnati a couple of weeks ago. For a (hefty) price - you could even go up and fly in the plane with the pilots.
We stopped at the Winneshiek Bar & Grill for a bite to eat. It's a big two story bar & grill with an ample patio. It was early so it wasn't too busy and we got a primo seat! They don't really have a web presence of any kind so I figure I'll add the menu pics here in case anybody tries to look them up.
Winnie Chips ($3.99) - these are house-made potato chips and boy was I right to pick these. They were the twirly kind that you can usually only get at fairs and festivals!!! They were just as good as I remembered - salty, crispy and some were a little underdone and bendy - love those!!!!
He put his feet in the Mississippi River!!!!! Pretty amazing happening!!!
