Once we got to Des Moines we checking into our hotel and then walked to dinner. I found a unique pizza place using a restaurant app on my Kindle Fire and it was a hit!
Fong's Pizza had previously been a Chinese restaurant, but some pizza minded individuals took over a few decades ago and they have been pumping out Asian themed pizzas ever since.
I tried the sweet and sour chicken pizza, because I'm a sucker for anything with pineapple on it. I guess their specialty is a crab rangoon pizza, but we didn't know that when we ordered. I suppose there's always next time!
After dinner we walked to the ballpark and I promptly bought tickets as close to first base as possible. Why? Well, because that's where Dan Vogelbach was playing, of course!
Laura had no idea when she planned this getaway weekend that the Iowa Cubs would be in town, let alone that the VOGELMONSTER was on the roster. That's okay, I made sure to let her know in short time.
By the way, in case you missed, the VOGELMONSTER was the PCL player of the week last week.
Oh, and I most recent Ebay find came the other day . . . it's a sweet camo parallel numbered to /15.
The next day we hit the sculpture park in the center of downtown.
Eatery A and indulged in brunch. I had chicken and waffles!

For dinner we stopped in at Zombie Burger and once again indulged. I need to start running again!
The next morning we took a nice stroll around Gray's Lake, which was followed by a lap around the state capitol building.
