Travel Tuesday -14 States in 10 Days

Dory here, to wish you another Happy Travel Tuesday!!
On Travel Tuesday we (or sometimes our Mini Me's) 
tell you all about our travels!!




 Today I'll be telling you about Day 5 of our 14 States in 10 Days trip! If you haven't read about the first four days you can read about them HERE or click on the tab towards the top of our blog named Travel Tuesdays

Mama and I are doing the day to day posts about this trip so you can see fun things about traveling with your human! PLUS, it will show how we pets can make what, in Mama's case, what might have been a boring and rather sad trip into a special experience we will both treasure always! 

By documenting it here, we can go back anytime and re-read all the special things we did together!!
We want to thank our readers for being patient with us as we take 87 million (or maybe 10) weeks of our Tuesdays with different days the same trip.

Now....on to Day 5!!



The sun better be up, Mama!!!!

We woke up in Omaha and I was amazed to see the sun was already up!!  
Mama said something about how the hotel not being very busy, so there was not much need for my barking constantly security services!



Let's go Mama!!
I was bright eyed, bushytailed and ready to 
hit the road!!



The first of the 87 billion farm pictures

On day 5 we began the "Great Farms of the USA" tour! For some reason, Mama just loves to take pictures of these farmhouses!




Catching wind not passing wind
We also saw bunches of these things while we were driving through Iowa!! Mama says they catch wind and make energy out of it.....




Close up of a wind catcher
 They were pretty cool and as long as they weren't passing stinky wind like Arty does, they were ok with me!'





Are we there yet???
 We kept driving and driving through until...
OMD Mama, there it is!!!!!




 We passed RIGHT BY the infamous town of Hampton, Iowa. This is where my Daddy and a couple of his brothers were born!!
How very cool is that!! I told Mama to text the picture to Daddy (as soon as we stopped at our next rest stop)!!





87th farm Mama took a picture of...
We passed about 87 more farms and made sure we waved at everyone all through Iowa, just in case we passed Stella, Gussie and MaggieMae!

Before I knew it we arrived in Stephens Point, Wisconsin!!!





Mama...if you don't walk off all that fast food you are going to get a tummy ache!!
 After we checked into our hotel room and ate dinner, I let Mama know a hike was in order. She tried to tell me it was too windy, but I wasn't going to let a little wind stop us!!




Why yes....that IS another farm, bet you weren't surprised either!
 We found a pretty park and walked around looking for squirrels
at all the wonderful views!!



"Mama, just let me chase a couple of those squirrels!!"


 I even let Mama take a couple of pictures of me with the lovely view.  I might have been a bit pre-occupied, but hey, it's the thought that counts, right??





Nighty night!
 What a farm-fun-filled day we had!!!
I was all tuckered out after our walkie....I fell asleep before my little head hit the pillow!!


Day 5-Nebraska, Iowa and Wisconsin (and an itty bitty bit of Minnesota)
We hope you enjoyed Day 5 of our journey!!
Join us next week when, after we load up the stuff we drove out here for, we start heading Northwest 
on Day 6 of 14 States in 10 Days!!

I can see why your mom likes the pictures of the farmhouses! They are very pretty and iconic (my assistant used this word not me). I especially like the one with the river. Thanks for taking us along on your journey.

What a great road trip! Mom says she still loves the Midwest even though it is very flat. She actually misses corn fields! She would never move back there but she does get the desire to walk through corn fields. Great photos!

Your Pals,
