Tug Fest

We experienced the best of the midwest this weekend at what is known as Tug Fest - a giant tug of war between Iowa and Illinois across the Mississippi River. 

Eleven different teams from both states register to tug for three minutes per tug. Three minutes! That's a long time!! Best out of 11 tugs wins.

This year? Iowa won. 

After the tug, we enjoyed some carnival-style refreshments in the shade (fried oreos, funnel cakes, lemonade and snow cones) and some world class people watching (mullets were out in force).

I think the midwest is going to suit us just fine.
