Lisa, I arrived last night.  For the life of me, I don't know how you drove straight thru.  Left Decorah and had breakfast at a diner in Guttenberg.  Drove to Pella and planned to stay a couple of hours but wound up sleeping overnight.  Got stuck behind. a 35 tractor parade which set me back an hour. Apparently, the farmers do this for fun.  Fun for them, not so much for the cars who get stuck behind them.  DN2 eluded me while in Decorah.  He was probably hiding in the tree laughing at me.  Did see the three juvies at Walmart.  Took one look at me and wandered off into the distance.  Dad has taught them well.  At least I can enjoy him by looking at your pictures.  Did not want to leave Decorah.  It gets harder every time I visit.

Oh no, a tractor parade....I bet that was a painful drive! 

That lil town Guttenburg is cute.  On my next trip to Decorah, I want to stop there and look around. 

Glad you made it home safely and it was so nice to have met you!

The tractor parade, they move so  s-l-o-w. Leaves a person fonching at the bit.    >:(
You  have a humorous way of describing your Decorah visit.
Glad you are safely home and enjoyed you visit/ATF

Lisa, maybe they are cam shy.  I am sure that DM2 has pointed out all the cameras.  LOL
