After dropping Keegan off (J's younger brother) at the Temple for Performing Arts for Youth Symphony practice, we passed the Des Moines Public Library
and wandered the recently completed Pappajohn Sculpture Park.
We then enjoyed a delectable hummus and roasted red pepper sandwich with Peruvian coffee at Ritual Café. More pics in the gallery!
Des Moines is not the doldrums you may expect. Jackie is amazed by all the changes in the past ten years. Here is a fantastic city guide that she really likes: http://www.designspongeonline.com/2009/09/des-moines-guide.html
