Shrinking ghosts

How the heck did this happen?!






Damn ghosts anyway.

Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween!!!


Ewww, pumpkin guts!


We planted pumpkins in the garden this year. They basically took over. we got 5 nice ones and found a few more later.

We visited a pumpkin patch with Miranda and her family a week or so ago.

An amazing corn maze. See it from the air here Growing Family Fun. They had a map and numbered spots you had to find, punch your map, then when you found them all, and your way out, you got a prize.

Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium

The Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque was a very interesting place to visit. There is something there for everyone. Besides the history and aquariums, I was very impressed with the level of technology they are using in their displays. There's one photo below of LAD touching a fish on a screen, it was some kind of game, or something, but it was all touch screen. There was another rounded type screen showing a video and it was quite impressive too. They have Imax/3d type movies there, but we didn't see those.

Don't pass it up if you're ever there. Plan to spend at least a whole day there.

This was by far about the best part for LAD. Plunk in enough quarters/tokens and you too can be a ship boat captain, for a few minutes at least. Or a pirate, whichever you prefer.
