Last Tuesday we journeyed down to Council Bluffs to do a little shopping. Our stop for lunch was at Panera Bakery, famous for their out-of-this world bagels. Another thing that is exceptional is there soup in a bread bowl, which we had for lunch. Excellent. Our first soup in a bread bowl experience was in San Francisco at Pier 39 in the 80's. It's been a favorite ever since.
One f the projects Chuck completed this week on a nice day was adding a fuel filter to our pick-up form the auxiliary tank to the main fuel tank. We had some sunny days this week but several that were cloudy and rainy. I guess that's weather in May in Iowa! Thursday evening Jim and Jerri stopped by for a visit. It was really good to see them and we made plans to spend a couple of weeks at a near by lake.
Yesterday we packed up the rig and got ready to head to Ledges State Park near Boone for several days. Our son Brent and family live in near by Ames and we will get to see them and celebrate Michael's First Communion. Our son Eric and family will come over from Chicago area, too. We stopped to see my mom and dad in Halbur on our way through. We enjoyed lunch together and spent time visitng with them.
