we forgot iowa!

You might think that iowa would be easy to forget, but no! Iowa is great. We were eating at this chinese restaurant and sitting right behind us were four blonde children and their blonde Mommy:

"Mommy! I want to sit on the tractor!"
'No! Me! I want to sit with Daddy!"
"Is we having a tractor race?"
"No honey, we're having a tractor pull"

So basically eavesdropping is the best thing ever. We got to see a tractor pull!


For those of you who have no idea what a tractor pull is (because we certainly didn't know and thought it was when two tractors are tied together and pull each other in opposite directions until one dies), basically a tractor is attached to that big red truck which has a mechanism that gets heavier over time. The farther you can pull it, the stronger your tractor is and the strongest tractor wins!

Oh, Iowa. Oh, the Midwest. It's close, in my heart!
PS- I'm going to be sad when you hang out in AWESOME Chicago without me.
