Iowa is great. I love Iowa. It's been beautiful this weekend, raining mostly at night and not too hot. Last night we sat on the deck reading while beer can chicken cooked on the grill, and it was really nice.
Anyway - the important news - we like Audrey! And we hope she likes us. We've had fun so far, which is a good sign. Yesterday we went into IA City and went to the mall (shoe shopping, I bought cute new Birkis for summer) and then downtown to Prairie Lights, the best bookstore EVER. We had lunch at Atlas and then came home and started getting dinner ready.
I finished Good In Bed yesterday by Jennifer Weiner. It's about a plus-sized woman coming to terms with her life and her body while surviving many unlikely life events. Not bad... I'm ready for something really fluffy now, though. I think a trip to B&N is in order for this afternoon. Don't tell Jon, since he'll say I should read something I bought at Target the other night. Hah! Target has ruined their once-excellent romance rack, so I need to go to a proper bookstore and stock up.
Jake is having a good time with Gracie, of course, and napping a lot on the sofa. He went walking with Herb this morning and did 3 miles faster than we usually do, so he should be pretty relaxed for the rest of the day. We'll have to do the trail tomorrow morning before we hit the road.
