The Furriest Kid I’ve Ever Seen!

I’m pretty confident that at least one attendee at the Le Mars Public Library had a good time this morning!

I know their town loves ice cream, but I didn’t realize they all love rock and roll, too!

Tasty-Looking Dinosaurs!

Yesterday morning we found ourselves in Le Mars, the Ice Cream Capital of the World!

We were amazed to find one of the world’s greatest detectives, Sherlock Holmes,looking for a missing alligator.

Luckily, we found the alligator.

Before we left, I learned if you eat too much ice cream as a kid, you grow a moustache like my friend in the orange shirt.

Next it was off to Marcus, where the locals welcomed me by honking their semi horns.
