            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Jeffrey L. Poulson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the physical care and visitation provisions of the parties’ dissolution decree.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the father is the more stable parent and he should have physical care of the child.  The mother’s proposed adjustment to the visitation schedule would not be in the child’s best interests.  We affirm the physical care and visitation provisions of the dissolution decree.
