Amana Colonies!

A few weeks ago, we decided we wanted to do a little Iowa exploring! We had heard about the Amana Colonies ( a old German communal community), so we thought we'd check it out! It reminded us a lot of Garner Village up in South Jordan, Utah. It had cute shops, and it was quiet and relaxing just to walk around the different buildings.

I just thought this house was really cute.

A view down the road. There was a fudge shop, chocolate shop, bakery, toy store (Andrew liked that one), German restaurants, clothing shops, general stores, a winery, and lots of cheese.

Cute buildings.

We had a lot of fun there! It felt like a relaxing getaway! And it didn't hurt that the weather was beautiful!
