My weekend was busy busy! T and I road tripped to Okoboji to enjoy one of the last warm weekends of fall weather. Although most of the leaves had already fallen off the trees, it was fun to see the lake one last time before winter arrives. We couldn't have asked for better weather! It was 70 degrees and sunny on Saturday, and we were able to get outside for a while, go on a walk and enjoy the day.
Just a little mid-October getaway to Okoboji...
We were sad to see the hoists already in the yard. We couldn't believe how low the water is! It looks to be about 2 feet lower than usual. We now almost have a beach!
Happy the dock was still in!
The weather at the lake was a drastically better than our other potential weekend plans to road trip to East Lansing, MI where it was about 40 degrees and rainy at the Iowa vs. Michigan State game. We enjoyed watching the game from the couch indoors, but still agree that it is more fun to be at the game instead of watching from afar.
Hawks win in double overtime at Michigan State! 19-16 (2OT)
We're looking forward to the back half of the 2012 Iowa Hawkeye football season, and trips to Iowa City to cheer on and celebrate more Hawkeye victories! Next up, Iowa vs. Penn State under the lights at Kinnick this coming weekend! Go Hawks!
