Last week I was lucky enough to be able to be a bridesmaid in one of my best friends wedding in Iowa! I had never been to Iowa and I was amazed at its beauty! Audra and Joe live in Bellevue which happens to be right on the Mississippi River, and their backyard just happens to be the Mississippi!

I also got to see a barge go through a lock! Seriously I was like a kid in a candy store. We sat at the lock for an hour and a half so I could watch, it was so cool!
I was a geeky tourist!
|The lock! This is the bottom gate.|

I will spare you the 25 other pictures I have!
I had an amazing time!!! (Thanks Mom for watching the girls)This was the first kid free vacation I have had, yay for me! We talked and laughed for hours! Stayed up way too late every night, but the best part about this trip was watching my best friend marry an amazing man! I am so excited and happy for them!

|Me and Audj!|

So to Audra and Joe....Congratulations and I wish you a life time of love and happiness! I love you!
