One of the best things about Iowa is that there are amazing Farmers' Markets! We went to one that is considered to be one of the largest open-air markets in the mid-West. It was great fun and absolutely huge (12 city blocks with over 200 vendors). The video at the end is of a guy making pottery at the fair. We walked away with a yummy snow cone and a beautifully crocheted baby blanket!
Afterwards we went to our new favorite "Sushi House" restaurant, where I ordered a whole plate of sushi... Our server thought we were sharing it, and looked at me like I was crazy when I said it was just for me. Raw fish is out during pregnancy, but I can still enjoy cucumber avocado rolls!
