  • Side angle on a frozen pond in full snow attire is not easy, my friends, but it was just so sunny I felt the need to yoga. 😆 Also, if you live in Marion County, go see @cairnyogawellness. 🧘🏼‍♀️ #IowaBlessed

  • This is the American Gothic House in Eldon, Iowa where Grant Wood painted his iconic American Gothic painting. Scroll through to see all the pictures. We took them on our visit there in 2017 on behalf of @traveliowa. Since this week’s @iamcountryside theme is American Gothic, I thought it was time for a throwback and a little history lesson. .
.
.
🖼 🖼 I know that’s not the real intent of the theme, but I don’t currently have any chickens to pose with and I am NOT picking up our turkey and I can’t get the family to do this again right now. It was hard enough the first time. 😂 But these pictures are seriously some of my all time favorite family photos. .
.
.
Anyway, Grant Wood was originally from Iowa and American Gothic is his most famous painting. The models are his sister and his dentist. You can visit the house and visitor’s center in Eldon (SE) Iowa and they’ll loan you these fabulous costumes so you can recreate the painting. For free guys! And you can see how thrilled my family was that I made them do this. 😂😂
.
.
.
The original American Gothic painting is at the Art Institute of Chicago. I’ve been there a few times, most recently also in 2017 with my dear friend Robin on an amazing girls’ weekend.  We had such a great time finding the painting and exploring the Art Institute.

Anyway - I love seeing all the creative American Gothic farm poses people are posting this week. Maybe I’ll talk my family into a new pose this summer. Happy Thursday!! #thisisiowa #iamcountryside #americangothic

  • Today we walked out to the crash site of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, the "Big Bopper", and their 21-year old pilot.  Tonight, dinner next to the Surf Ballroom.

60 years ago.  I remember studying it all in school, 20 years ago.

  • Thankful for our friends @bfdogacademy who have open training three times a week which lets us get out of the house and train at our own speed. They also have great equipment featuring @fitpawsusa and if you haven’t ever tried a FitPaws bone I suggest you give them a try! Heelwork has been our biggest struggle in training but adding in the FitBone gives a “boring” task a fun twist. Don’t have access to a FitBone? Go on Amazon and grab a balance disk for $15! #dogsofinstagram #fitpawsusa #dogtraining #dogtrainingtips

  • The annual “B-rrry Scurry” race can certainly live up to its name…the coldest on record was 15 below zero (wind chill of -55)! But whether it’s frigid or unseasonably warm, the event - which doubles as a scholarship fundraiser - has attracted runners from across the region for more than 35 years. #ThisIsIowa

  • Hi! My name is Hannah and this is my Brittany spaniel (hence the name!), Madison. We live and travel in the Midwest and I try to include her in my life outside the house as much as possible. This instagram and soon to be blog is all about dog and human adventure, activity and training. Madison and I have begun agility and obedience training and hope to help you as well! So give us a follow and experience life’s trials and tribulations with us (and maybe get a few pointers along the way!) 🐶
