I just got in the US when we traveled to Iowa to attend the wedding of Wayne, hubby's oldest son. I still remember, September 2003 when I got my US visa. My hubby was so excited because he wanted to attend the wedding of Wayne in Iowa. We went to Manila and bought our tickets there. Hubby and I arrived in Texas September 30, 2003. Three days after, we traveled by car to Iowa to attend the wedding. I was excited to see the states that we passed by like Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. It was a long trip, 15 hours on the road. Hubby and I went with Shelly, Robert and Josh. Robert was the driver. We left Texas very early in the morning and we reached our destination around past seven in the evening. That was my first time to travel that far by car.
Wayne and Melissa's wedding was held at Vander Veer Botanical Garden in Davenport, Iowa the next day. The reception was in a restaurant in Moline, Illinois. We crossed the Mississippi River and after the reception, we went to take photos at the Mississippi River. We spent 2 nights in Iowa and went back home tired of the long trip.
