About mid-morning, Brock and Keith took Keith's car and headed in to Cedar Rapids to visit a leasing company that both of their companies are considering doing business with. They enjoyed it because they saw a lot of great examples in how they run their company and have team and individual goals and everyone in their company sees how they're doing.
Anne was still not feeling well so I cleaned up the breakfast mess and got my shower. The kids had already cycled through the bathroom and were all playing together, mostly playing Minecraft together on their different devices.

We ate a quick and easy lunch of chicken nuggets and tator tots along with cucumbers and carrots.
When Brock and Keith got back, we heard about their trip and the Cuban restaurant they'd checked out on the way back.
Brock and I then decided to load up the two older kids and head into Iowa City which was about 20 minutes drive away to go to the nearest Laundromat. We ended up driving twice around the mall parking lot where the laundry was supposed to be and almost giving up before driving across to another building and peeking around its end and seeing the Laundromat tucked in there. We got our laundry started and walked across the parking lot to McDonald's for snack size McFlurries as a reward for having to do laundry. Brock was able to make a connection with our new tenants for our house in Bend via a phone call. It was good as they were moving in and it was the first time we'd talked to them. They had some questions too so it was nice to touch base.
Once the laundry was done, we headed back to camp where Keith and Anne had a fire going and the coals were perfect for another camping favorite - roasted hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls. Fun dinner. The execution wasn't perfect; it was alittle difficult to get the hot dog hot without burning the dough or eating going dough in the center, but everyone ate some form of it. We enjoyed sitting around the fire for awhile and then got to bed.
