time flies with the pigs

Hot off the heels of country fest, Jon and I loaded up the jeep to drive to Iowa for a wedding.  Google maps confirmed that the trip from Cadott, Wisconsin to Des Moines, Iowa was 6 hours, and so we left at 8am – plenty of time to get to the 6pm ceremony.  Or so you would think.  Views of the gorgeous countryside had me begging Jon to pull over so I could take pictures:

I love BBQ the way Jon loves pizza, and so we headed inside to try the town’s 12 homemade sauces. The waitress suggested the famous spam burger (miracle meat, apparently), and told us to feel free to shop for piglet trinkets while we waited:

The piglets got us thinking about selling pets, and I asked Jon how much he would sell Kinzie for. He valued her at ten thousand, and I told him I would never forgive him if he lowballed our sweet puppy.  He agreed, but said that he would have to let her go for 20k.  I asked him what we would tell his parents, our friends.  Simple, he explained — we lost her.  My reaction:

With all the amusement of the piglets, BBQ and countryside, we realized it was 2:30 we were still in Minnesota- with three hours to go.  We cranked it up up 85mph, force straight, changed in the car…

and made the wedding (on time):
