Just north of Des Moines, Iowa is a Corps of Engineers lake and several campgrounds…….we stayed at one of them, Cherry Glen Campground on Saylorville Lake. Now, we have lived in the St. Louis, Missouri area for most of our lives and are familiar with the Iowa weather: winds blow across most of the time, it is hot in the summer and cold in the winter, and winter ice and snow are frequent problems. This week was no different; but we had good strong electrical hookups and our A/C’s work well. They issued an Extreme Heat Warning for this part of Iowa as the temperatures were always in the 95º range for the week……at nights only cooling off to the upper 70º’s.
But while we were here, we discovered the neighboring town…. well not really anything for us to discover but this:
We also made time to visit with some of our eldest son’s friend and family while we were here. They have 2 boys, one is 8 and the other is 2; it was fun to see them and meet the boys. We haven’t seen them since the 8 year old was about 3 years old! Sadly, I forgot to take a photo with them……too hot for my brain I guess!
