Visit Spectators in Altoona for a great Father’s Day outing

This is my new favorite restaurant in Altoona!  There is delicious food and a fun environment, I think your dad will love it!  It’s chalked full of sports memorabilia.  It’s located just east of Adventureland and owned by the same people.  It looks like they have a room you can rent out too, which we may have to look into at some point.

I feel like Altoona has a new awesome restaurant and I’m so excited about it!  If you check it out, come back and let me know what you think!   I ate my food instead of taking a picture of it, opps.2016-06-17 (1)  2016-06-17 (2) 2016-06-17 (3)2016-06-17 (5)



Visiting Backbone State Park

Backbone State Park is located in northeast (ish) Iowa.  If you vacation in WI, it maybe a good stop on the way.  It’s the very first state park in the state of Iowa and it’s great!  There is a nearby fish hatchery in Manchester with a suspension bridge at the very back and chance to see from live trout in the nearby stream.  Admission is free and they provide food to feed the trout.  Happy exploring, friends!

Medical bills

I had the unfortunate experience to learn that hospitals will often work with you on an interest free basis to help you pay your medical bills.  If you find yourself in this situation, it may not hurt to make some phone calls to the hospital and see if they are able to do this for you.

I hope you are all very healthy!  

Having good health, is something to be so grateful for!
