The new plan is to meet at Walnut Woods State Park. If you are not sure where this is, click on the map link above.We will meet up at 1:45 and leave at 2pm. The drive will take around 30-40 mins. We will follow Grand Ave in to the downtown district, circle the city hall building then go back and cross the Des Moines River, and finally drive to Bauders (Pharmacy) Ice Cream Parlor.See More
Hey, if you get some free time we are trying to get as many Iowans to place a marker on our Iowa Smarties map. Just type in your address at the top and If you put your e-mail address in the message box it will show on the map. This will help Jefferios to get a hold of us if there is another Iowa get together in the future.
Probably not, I will have to head to Omaha when our event is over. (I am due in surgery at 0630 the following morning.) He is being a little stubborn, he has not even sat in the car yet. My daughter is getting used to it though, she is enjoying the attention, and has developed many different "reaction" faces to make at people who point and laugh at my car. (She's really enjoying that, and she is my person that helps me get into "trouble" by wandering around town.) Maybe my husband will start to understand about my car soon, although he's really enjoying using my old car, and seems to not want to drive his truck anymore. (I wonder if he's just having difficulty with the size of my car?) Anyway, I am really looking forward to meeting you and Joy. (I wonder if we are the only two women in the group?)
I'm getting some door prizes from my employer, and possibly some pins from the Organ Donor Network. (I am on the transplant team.)
Can you think of anyone else who may be able to supply small "freebies" for our rally?
I wish my husband were as excited about the Smart as you are!! Are you and Joy sharing the same car, or did you both get one? (Just wondering, because the picture is the same.) I am looking forward to the get together on Sept. 28th, will you be able to attend?
