First off, great news: they got their Baby back Baby back Baby back!
Next up is a photo journal from my trip to visit my granny and family in Iowa!
So when we were driving down there, we stopped in this town called Clear Lake and they were having a kite festival on the frozen lake - crazy and cold!
This is a picture of me braving the cold for a photo op.
And then we got to my granny's and I saw these beasties on the farm and they're called bison and they're jumpy - I pretty much scared them and they broke an electric wire and I didn't even have to bark.
And this is how I scared them, and my dad helped.
And then I met this horse who my mom loves, and I growled at him.
And then we opened presents with my cousins and I got a hat and a jacket, but the jacket is too small because my granny didn't realize how buff I am so we have to exchange it - pics later.
And I got to play with my treat ball like at home.
And then it was time to go home and the car started to smoke in the driveway so we had to take it to a repair shop and they don't really do a lot of Nissans in Iowa so we had to leave it there and drive my granny's summer car home so we have to go back this weekend to get the car. Woo hoo!
But there was a storm while we were there and then there was a lot of wind so the roads were really crappy to drive on and my dad was all growly and agitated because the roads looked like this and it wasn't even snowing, it was just the wind blowing the snow because Iowa only has one tree to block the wind because it's all farms.
Finally we got the the freeway and were all "whew" but the freeway looked like this.
There were cars off the road everywhere and it was really scary so I pretty much slept the whole time.
And there was one spot where there were 17 cars in the ditch.
And some looked like this.
But most of these happened the night before and they were still there because there was a towing ban to keep the tow trucks from making everything worse.
So it's way sucky that we had to leave my car in Iowa, but at least it didn't break down on the road because that would have been the worst ever but all things considered, it was an awesome trip with snacks like bison stew and chili and lots of stuff the kids dropped on the floor.
