Sioux Falls, SD

After a very long day and a lot of corn fields later we finally arrived in Sioux Falls,SD. I took this picture last night after I posted.

I am sooo tired and you would think it was from looking at 8 hours of corn fields{ not lying either} but it's not. This is what it looked like at 5 AM this morning in St Louis. OK people it is NOT daylight at MY house that early. This 1 hour time change has my body messed up. So I have been up since 5 am!

This was at a rest area in Missouri and I guess it really was their resting area!

I have got to tell this story. We are driving in Iowa and see a sign for a Soda Fountain Shop so I decide to to get off on that exit in Hamburg. This town was so little they did not even have a red light.It was a 4 way and there was no one coming either way..lol. Well needless to say we didn't stop because the 2 people in town were giving us the eye. They didn't look to friendly either. This town reminded me of this old horror movie "Children of the Corn".The town was empty and we were surrounded by corn.So I turned my car around and headed back to the interstate as fast as I could.Before some kids started bringing out their pitch forks...lol.
