The lead in to a week of frenetic activity was picking up the grandkids and son Tony at the Cedar Rapids, Iowa airport. After an overnight in Cedar Rapids, we headed home to Minnesota and stopped on the way in Dubuque, Iowa to see the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium. River fish and animals, interactive exhibits, river boats of all types and descriptions were all there. The kids loved it.
Naturally, being a Mississippi River guy, Mark Twain was there to greet us.
The next day we headed off the Minnesota Zoo in the Twin Cities. Well, you get the idea of how it went......:)
