As we got closer to Minnesota, the weather was getting cooler and wetter. Frank was getting pretty tired of being in the car so we made a stop at the Iowa/Minnesota state line to fill up one last time and let little Frankie dog get some air. I think Jas and my mom bought a couple postcards and souvenirs from the Iowa Welcome Center, then we were back on the road. I drove from that point so I didn't get any more pictures of the trip. As we pulled into Minneapolis we were catching the beginning of rush hour which was not making me happy-- I just wanted to get home as quick as possible. Like Frankie, I too was getting tired of being confined to the car.
We finally made it home around 5:30 or so. About 30+ hours on the road and nearly 2,300 miles. It felt good to have a home cooked meal, put my feet up and not have to worry about getting to bed/getting up early to be back on the road. Frank was a little curious about the new digs, but when she saw her basket full of new toys she was all about it. Jas and I had thought about watching a movie, but we were both pretty tired so I think we all ended up in bed by 10pm-- I think the earliest we had gone to bed all week. And boy did it feel nice!
Thanks for looking-- tomorrow I'll post some photos of hanging with the fam in Minneapolis.
