We visited Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa on the first day of our weekend road trip. Neither of us have ever been to a college or university, making it a new experience. We left home early so we would get to Des Moines in the early afternoon.
Since they don’t allow dogs to actually attend the university, we took a walk around the campus area and found some fun things to take photos of. Interestingly, the school mascot is a Bulldog. We are not big Bulldog breed fans as Mom likes cute fluffy/scruffy dogs, but a dog is a dog. Spike is the first one we ran into. He looks scary but didn’t lay a paw on us.
As we walked along, we found this fun mural for the school. The Bulldog looks much nicer on the mural! The campus had several fun murals but most were either blocked behind a fence or had cars parked in front of them.
There is a place call the Drake Diner and they have this dressed up Bulldog out front. His name is Porterhouse and we think he eats a lot of Porterhouse steaks to get as big as he is!
I found this Easter tree on a corner. It’s hard to believe Easter is next weekend! Someone had some creativity with this one. The cuteness put a little smile on my face.
But, by far, the best find at Drake University was our niece Meredith! We haven’t seen her in quite some time. When we saw her, we both went wild. It was a lot of fun hanging out with her for a few hours.
